CALL FOR ART – Annual Autumn Arts Festival on the Madison Town Green (CT)

CALL FOR ART with the Connecticut Plein Air Society members for our annual Autumn Arts Festival on the Madison Town Green (CT), Columbus Day Weekend, October 8-9 (rain date October 10).

As a Festival participant, artists can also submit work for inclusion in a 6-week show (Sept. 23-Nov. 6) in our Spectrum Gallery and Store. You can view the Gallery on our site: We typically display at least two pieces per Festival artist in the Gallery and a limited number of items per craft in the gallery store.  Again the amount of items exhibited is at the discretion of the Gallery and the space available.

These two events – on the Madison Green as well as the Gallery Show – are highly promoted and visible locations so we do draw a nice crowd, many of whom return year after year.  This would also be a wonderful way for people on the Shoreline of Connecticut to get to know the artists from your organization.  For detailed information about Festival and Gallery participation, click this link: Online Prospectus

We promote this program and artists in numerous ways including a postcard mailing listing all participants sent to over 5,000 community members, feature articles and captioned photos in local and regional papers, posters displayed throughout the Shoreline of CT, listings in numerous online calendars, promotion on our active social media outlets, email blasts to over 5,000 people and a personalized gallery page with a bio and photos of the work of each participating artist on our well visited website.

Our gallery shows are organized by themes, such as our current show Water, Water Everywhere.  So, the Festival is a wonderful way for artists to get involved in the gallery who may not fit into our particular show theme.  Artists can also stay involved with us by joining our online Shop, Spectrum Anytime.

If you have any questions, please email me at or call (860) 663-5593.

Thank you,
Barbara Nair
