Please join the Shoreline ArtsTrail at a special event hosted by Madison’s Friends & Company Restaurant on Sunday, November 11 from 2:30 - 4:00 p.m. We’re celebrating the kick-off of Open Studios Weekend with this Opening Reception featuring ArtsTrail members Carol Graves, Pat Miller, Jane Novick, Scott Paterson, Diana Perron, Pat Rist, Barbara Shulman-Kirwin, Sandy Spahr, Marjorie Sopkin, Maureen Squires, and Diane Wright! This is a great opportunity to preview this year’s Open Studios artists, sample some of Friends & Company signature offerings and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine.
Friends & Company owners Gregory Benson and Brian Gondek are strong supporters of the arts, and a 2012 Shoreline ArtsTrail sponsor. Since 2003, they have offered their restaurant as a gallery space for local artists—much to the delight of diners and the creative community.
Friends & Company first opened its doors in 1980. Located at 11 Boston Post Road between the Madison and Guilford border, the restaurant has been serving up a varied menu using local ingredients for over 30 years, with an emphasis on freshly prepared and health conscious foods.
This Friends & Company event kicks off the Shoreline ArtsTrail’s 11th annual Open Studios Weekend, November 17 and 18, 2012, with 47 participating artists in Branford, Guilford and Madison. The event is free and open to the public. Art will be on display and for sale through the month of November, with all proceeds directly benefiting the artists.
