Founded By Artists, Supporting Artists

The Artists' Cooperative Gallery of Westerly was founded by artists Bruce Goodsell, Sandi Gold, and Ginger Mitchell in 1992. Artist-owned and operated, it has grown significantly through the years and currently has around 50 artist members and a dedicated group of friends, associates, sponsors, and volunteers.
ACGOW is a nonprofit art organization dedicated to supporting and nurturing the visual arts in the greater Westerly/Pawcatuck area through:
• Increasing awareness and appreciation of the visual arts
• Building an arts community through mutual support, cooperation and education
• Providing artists with an opportunity to develop, exhibit and sell their work
Operating an art gallery requires extensive work. Gallery members ensure that the gallery is open 35 hours a week, hang a new show each month, prepare mailings and media releases, create marketing, maintain a website, and prepare special events. Many members work full time. If you are interested in helping us by volunteering your time, please contact us for more information at email@example.com.
