(Gallery will be closed in observance of the 4th of July. )

       Throughout history, artists have worked with a variety of mediums in order to explore their talents and inspirations from multiple viewpoints. Degas is remembered for his impressionistic paintings of ballerinas, but who could forget his “Little Dancer,” made of bronze and silk? In July the artist members of the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly (ACGOW) will exhibit their own forays into new creative territories in this show. The theme, “What If…? Artists Exploring,” invites our members to show works that are outside the area in which they were juried into the gallery. It will be fun to see the results of this challenge.

      Our July show is sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway Realtors of Westerly, RI and the Law offices of Sean Donohue. The public is invited to attend the opening reception on Friday July 5 from 5-8 pm, with wine contributed from Perks & Corks. Artist members will supply their usual array of edible treats. Thank you to all our contributors!

       Featured artists during the month of July are Carol Mossa and Dan Marantz. Please see our CURRENT EXHIBITION page for more information about them and their work.

        Our United in Arts Community Gallery will host an exhibit of the works of Cadence O’Neil, winner of the “Art It Forward” Scholarship. This $1000 scholarship is awarded to a Westerly High School graduating senior pursuing a career in the arts.  Ms. O’Neil is an outstanding student, musician and artist.  In the fall, she will begin studies in art education and musical theater.

       Also on exhibit in the Community Gallery will be ACGOW’s artist entries for the Art Heist, the Gallery’s annual fundraiser scheduled for Saturday, August 24th from 6-8pm at the historic Westerly Armory. Find more ART HEIST info HERE. Tickets are on sale now!

       Artist Tammy Blais will be offering her very popular Palette Knife Painting Class on July 9th from 2-4 pm and July 23 from 5:30-7:30 pm. Find more CLASS info HERE.

       The Gallery Shop in the West wing of the Gallery continues to offer beautiful gift items, cards and prints, all finely crafted by ACGOW artists. Find more GALLERY SHOP info HERE.
