                                Holiday Show and Food Appeal

With the holiday shopping season in full swing, the members of the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly are assembling an extensive and eclectic offering of small, affordable works of art – both decorative and functional. Visitors to the gallery will find gifts and treasures that are one-of-a-kind and lovingly created by our more than forty artists and artisans.

In addition to original paintings, drawings, and works of mixed media, shoppers will also find distinctive wearable art, hand-turned hardwood ornaments, hand-thrown pottery, lampwork and polymer clay statement jewelry, and more original creations. There will also be a wide selection of affordable prints and unique notecards.

​​In addition to the regular monthly First-Friday opening reception, which will take place on December 2 from 5-8, the Gallery will also hold a holiday reception as part of the downtown Westerly/Pawcatuck 20th Annual Holiday Stroll & Luminaria Celebration on Wednesday, December 7 from 5-8 PM.

As part of its commitment to the larger community, ACGOW also invites gallery-goers to bring along small gifts of non-perishable foods, which the Gallery will donate to help stock the shelves of the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center.  The Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to families and individuals in the greater Westerly/Pawcatuck area. The PNC welcomes gifts traditional holiday meal components such as boxed mashed potatoes, stuffing mix, gravy, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables and fruit. The Center also has a year-round need for gifts of canned meat, peanut butter, powdered milk and other non-perishables.  Donations will be accepted until December 16.  For more information visit
