GAYLORDSVILLE >> The Merwinsville Hotel will hold its second annual Spring Arts & Fine Crafts Show, May 6-7, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Join us as we celebrate spring and provide plenty of gift ideas, just in time for Mother’s Day.

The show will feature exceptional pieces of work from over 75 local artists and artisans representing glass, jewelry, blacksmithing, woodturning, painting, photography, pottery and more.

“We’re thrilled to be offering live artist demonstrations again this year that will include blacksmithing, woodturning and metalsmithing,” said event co-chairwomen, Lori Meehan and Linda McMillan. “You’ll have an opportunity to watch local artists in action, ask questions and discuss their craft.”

In addition to local artists, there will be locally grown delights from Meadowbrook Garden and The Village Farm Shop and Greenhouse! Just in time for Mother’s Day shopping!

“These shows not only help us showcase the amazing and diverse talent of the local artists we have in our area, but also helps us spread awareness about the Merwinsville Hotel and share it with the public,” said Jeremy Ruman, President, Board of Directors. “We’re excited to start restoration work on our third floor ballroom this year. It wouldn’t be possible without the generous donations from the public, our members and our volunteers. As a non-profit, we rely on these donations to continue our constant upkeep and restoration of this historic 1843 building.”

A $2 admission fee is requested. Children under 12 are admitted free.

The Merwinsville Hotel is a historic landmark located at 1 Brown’s Forge Road in Gaylordsville, 15 minutes from Kent, Sherman, New Milford and the Harlem Valley/Wingdale Railroad Station (the northwest corner of New Milford).
