A watercolor of sailboats floating on calm summer seas. A photo of vivid blue sky seen thru a luminous Antarctic Ice portal. And delicate handmade jewelry that makes the wearer feel cherished. Art is the perfect gift. And December’s show at the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly is full of ways to brighten the holidays.

December’s show features works in oils, watercolors, photography, glass, pottery, jewelry, fiber arts, sculpture and more. And of course, as always at the Artists’ Cooperative, shopping is tax-free.
