Six days of shopping offered at Merwinsville Hotel Spring Show


GAYLORDSVILLE—Mother’s Day gifts and local art is a focus at the seventh annual Spring Arts and Fine Crafts Show at the historic Merwinsville Hotel in Gaylordsville. The organization will offer six days to shop over two weekends before Mother’s Day.

The show will again be on two weekends, April 26-28 and May 3-5, for three days each weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

More than 90 local artists and artisans will have work on display at the show and all is for sale. A portion of all sales benefit the Merwinsville Hotel Restoration, a 100 percent volunteer nonprofit that has worked to restore the building for over 50 years. The 181-year-old building needs constant maintenance and renovation.

The show features artwork in glass, photography, jewelry, sculpture, fiber, woodwork, pottery and paintings in watercolors, oil and acrylic. Locally grown plants are also available for sale from Meadowbrook Garden in New Milford and The Village Farm Shop and Greenhouse in Gaylordsville.

One of the features of the spring show is live artist demonstrations and all six days from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. will have artists on hand. Past years have included spinners, weavers, jewelry making, wood carvers and many more.

There is a suggested $2 donation per person for the Spring Show. Children under 10 are admitted free. Admission for members is also free and those at the sponsor level and above will receive a discount on art purchased at one of the three annual shows.

The Merwinsville Hotel is a national historic landmark located at 1 Brown’s Forge Road in Gaylordsville. For further information, call 860-350-4443 or visit
