The Renowned American Artisan Show is returning November 2-3, at the Wilton Historical Society. The 33rd Annual American Artisan Show is the highlight of the season. There will be everything from fine and folk paintings to tramp art and much much more.
The American Artisan Show will take place Friday, November 2, from 10:00 – 5:00 and Saturday, November 3 from 10:00 – 5:00. Admission is $10; under 18 free. Fifty highly-skilled artisans from across the country will be presenting their work and its influences that have been part of American fine handwork since the 18th century. Shaker-style furniture, pottery, baskets, candles, quilts, Windsor chairs, rugs, floor cloths, art, tavern signs, fine jewelry – and even beautifully turned peppermills will be available for purchase. The show is fittingly set in the Society’s charming 18th and 19th-century buildings.
