Mother's Day Trunk Show at the Shop at Guilford Art Center
Guilford Art Center announces a trunk show featuring American handmade jewelry, clothing and accessories to coincide with Mother’s Day, on Saturday, May 4, 11am-2pm. The event features stylish and eye-catching pieces for spring, summer and beyond. Fiber artist and knitwear designer Andrea Geer creates sophisticated yet playful clothing with a sculptural quality and a fresh, contemporary approach. Her pieces are hand loomed from merino wool, linen and cotton and incorporate handmade buttons and pins to enhance the overall design. Christine Guanipa of Little Man Originals creates stand-out fabric handbags and accessories in vibrant colors and graphic patterns that are a great alternative to leather and plastic. Jewelry artist Faye Guanipa’s hand-crafted statement necklaces are bold accessories for the every-day woman with a strong sense of herself and a passion for personal style. The Shop also features works by hundreds of other artisans, including jewelry, accessories, ceramics, glass, wood and more. The Shop at Guilford Art Center is open year-round, seven days a week, Monday – Saturday 10-4, Sunday 12-4.
