       City, and seashore, tradition, and invention, different, and the same — Art bridges culture, language and outlooks. This month at the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly it even bridges state lines. Welcome to the 29th Annual Regional Juried Art Exhibit! This show of fine art and crafts is our largest and most diverse of the year. This year, we are honored to have Ben Anderson, Department Head and Associate Professor of three-dimensional art and sculpture at the University of Rhode Island, as our juror. See our special web page for all the information about this exciting event.

       Our Regional show is made possible, in part, through the generous sponsorship of Ocean House and Valenti Toyota. Thank you, also to Perks & Corks, for the wine served at our reception, and to our artists who provide an array of edibles and soft drinks.
