Every year, Glastonburys picturesque Hubbard Green changes from a quiet oasis of shade trees and open space into a bustling marketplace for original fine art and hand-made craft.

As visitors walk along the shaded aisles, they find realistic and abstract art in oil, watercolor, pastel, photography, graphics, drawing, mixed media, and sculpture. The diverse selection of hand-made craft includes works in clay, metal, glass, fiber, wood, and jewelry. Each item of original art and hand-made craft would please the most discerning home dcor or wardrobe.

The artists who participate in the On the Green Fine Art & Craft Show are selected for the top-notch caliber of their artistry. The secret to the shows long-term success is the high quality and extensive variety of art work exhibited for sale, says show committee member Katherine Simmons. Show visitors also know they will always find something to appeal to their artistic taste and budget.

The On the Green show is the signature event of Glastonbury Arts, founded in 1962 under the name of the Glastonbury Art Guild, and is one of the largest events of the year drawing thousands of people from around the region to a weekend of browsing and buying. Exhibiting artists arrive in Glastonbury from all points of the compass, from Maine to Florida, eager to show and sell their most recent creations to an appreciative audience.

Behind the scenes, Glastonbury Arts volunteers carefully plan this annual event for the maximum comfort of both visitors and exhibiting artists. The venue is inviting, admission and parking are free, a food court offers sustenance for the body, and art offers inspiration for the spirit everything is designed to make this a must on everyones weekend agenda, says Carol Ahlschlager, Glastonbury Arts Co-President and volunteer.

For young show visitors, the free Eco-Art for Kids activity provides the opportunity for children to create and take home imaginative sculptures made from recyclable items.
