Outpouring of Support
Guilford Art Center (GAC) would like to thank the town of Guilford, its citizens, businesses, and our many volunteers who helped to make Craft Expo 2022 on the Guilford Green a fantastic event. The outpouring of support from everyone in our community—and beyond—was joyously felt by GAC, with the event returning after a three-year hiatus. They welcomed back the artisans with open arms, reminding us all of how much the event is beloved in our town, and important to its cultural vibrancy and economic well-being.
Our fantastic corps of more than 100 volunteers who help make the show run are instrumental in the success of the event. They not only dedicate their time to help manage the show, but also serve as important ambassadors for our town and its cultural riches.
We also very much appreciate the financial support from our many sponsors and the support of the Guilford town departments with whom we work: Police, Parks & Recreation, Building, Health, Public Works and Fire Departments, and especially the Selectmen's Office.
Craft Expo serves as Guilford Art Center’s largest fundraiser. The proceeds we realize are vital to our operations, particularly to our educational programs, which provide the benefits of the arts to all in our community. Visitors and all who supported the event therefore enable GAC to serve the heart of our mission. For that we are especially grateful.
