A luminous photo of turquoise and sea blue beach glass that brings summer to a cold winter day. Delicate porcelain jewelry glowing withcolor. A simple act of neighbor helping neighbor. Some of the best things in life really do come inthe smallest packages. Those who appreciate the little things will enjoy “Small Treasures,” the holiday gift show featuring small artwork - and big hearts - at the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly.

All are invited to the show’s Opening Reception on Friday, November 7 from 5 to 8 PM, to hunt for small treasures, and bring some of their own. Visitors are invited to bring donations of non-perishable food, which will be delivered to the Jonnycake Center of Westerly in time for the holidays.

Come discover the beauty of sharing “Small Treasures" – whether it’s a colorful photo of an antique toy train, a curvy pot begging to be touched, a lovely, affordable print, or a gift of generosity sure to be treasured by a neighbor in need.

November’s show features a variety of artfully giftable oils, watercolors, acrylics, photography, glass, pottery, fiber arts, sculpture and more. And of course, as always at the Artists’ Cooperative, shopping is tax-free.

Suggested items for Thanksgiving baskets include instant mashed potatoes, stuffing mix, gravy (canned or in envelopes,), canned corn, peas and yams, canned fruit and cranberry sauce. Items needed year round include pasta and sauce, canned meat (e.g. Spam, stews,) tuna, beans, canned fruit, peanut butter & jelly, macaroni and cheese, powdered milk, juice.

The Jonnycake Center of Westerly is a non-profit organization that provides food, clothing, educational and financial assistance to those in need in the Westerly-Chariho area. Their mission is to provide a continuum of services in cooperation with other agencies in the area to assist people through crisis situations and to work with each individual to find a path out of dependence toward self-sufficiency. And right now, they, and those they serve, need help more than ever. For more information, please visit www.jonnycake.org.
