Let's take a moment to bask in the glow of Connecticut's artistically talented shoreline-area residents. Or maybe instead of a moment, let's stretch it out to a day or two. The Shoreline Arts Trail, an annual exploration of art studios in shoreline towns, returns this year on Nov. 17 and 18. The trail (meant to be driven, not walked) winds its way through Branford, Guilford and Madison, with yellow "Open Studio" signs posted around to guide you. Included on the trail are The Glass Hut (59 N. Harbor St., Branford, 203-481-0408, jcartglass.com), Tabar Designs (71 Whitfield St., Guilford, 203-458-8868, tabardesigns.com), Guilford Art Center (411 Church St., Guilford, 203-458-2187), Wildwood Farm (55 Sheep Pasture Rd., Madison, 203-245-9786) and Lerner Gallery (22 Scotland Ave., Madison, 203-779-5363, lernergallery.com). Visit shorelineartstrail.com for a full list of participating artists/studios and a map of the trail.
