February is a time to enjoy the quiet magic of winter, when even nature rests, renewing itself for spring’s new growth. In addition to savoring the stillness, snow and starker beauty, art lovers are invited to stroll into the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly at the historic Westerly Train Station and discover what artists love about the season in February’s show “Finding Joy in Winter.”
“Finding Joy in Winter” features a vibrant variety of work by the juried artists of ACGOW. Art lovers can view serene seascapes, peaceful winter landscapes, lively mobiles dancing in the air, handcrafted artisan wooden tables, photographs of New England during the calm off season and multicolored earrings, necklaces and bracelets. This collection of fine art, by local artists from Rhode Island and Connecticut, includes a large selection of oils, watercolors, acrylics, multimedia, photographs, pottery, handcrafted jewelry, woodwork, fiber arts, glass, sculpture, mobiles and more.
The Gallery continues to recognize its duty to care for its members and the community it serves and is taking all necessary health precautions. ACGOW is following RI COVID guidelines for cleaning, provision of hand sanitizer, mandatory use of facial masks, physical distancing between guests, and overall capacity in-gallery. There will be NO Opening Reception at this time because of safety precautions.
The gallery has a new weekly schedule and hours - Thursday - Sunday (1-5pm).
