Thank you to everyone who came to our first Pop-Up Arts and Crafts show at Lost Acres Vineyard in June. It was wonderful to have an in-person show to connect with our customers again. Granby Artists Association is very grateful to the Vineyard for hosting this outdoor arts and craft show series.
The next Pop-Up Arts and Crafts shows at Lost Acres Vineyard are on Sunday, July 18 (rain date July 25) and Saturday, Aug. 21 (rain date Aug. 28). The show is held on the lawn across the driveway from the Vineyard seating area. Show hours are the same as the Vineyard’s: Saturdays 12–6 p.m., Sundays 12–5 p.m. We hope this will become an annual show series.
Many of the exhibiting members of the Granby Artists Association are participating. There will be a unique mix of artists each month, so be sure to come each time and not miss out.
