“The Stamford Art Festival is unique not only because it offers such a wide variety of work from so many highly-skilled artisans from all over the country, but also because visitors have an opportunity to create as well,” says Sue Brown Gordon, the Museum Festival Director. “Here you can find something beautiful for your home, and learn about the creative process, too!” “We hope that by providing the opportunity and inspiration, visitors will also have fun making and sharing their own artwork while at the art festival.”
