The Westfield Art Association (WAA), one of the oldest art associations in New Jersey, is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC) in exhibiting 34 pieces of original artwork by 17 local artists in downtown Westfield. The artwork includes numerous styles and types of mediums such as oil, acrylic, photography and sculpture. Artwork is being exhibited through this holiday season in storefront windows on East Broad, Elm and Quimby Streets. Visitors are encouraged to visit each location and discover the wide array of artistic talent in our own community. 

“Downtown Westfield Corporation is pleased to work with the Westfield Art Association,” stated Sherry Cronin, Executive Director of the DWC. “They have been great partners to us not only in bringing art to downtown during the busy holiday season but also during our Sweet Sounds Downtown Jazz Festival. Westfield’s art and culture are another great asset of our strong community and critically important to encourage pedestrian traffic in our downtown. Our Economic Development & Promotion committees are especially pleased with the Holiday Windows project and look forward to many more collaborations with the Westfield Art Association in the future.”

In addition to artwork being exhibited in Downtown Westfield, the WAA has also curated their second exhibition of the year at Mulberry House — a farm to table restaurant located at 415 Westfield Avenue — that includes 25 pieces of art by 13 area artists, and one at Limani Seafood Grill — located at 235 North Avenue West — that includes art by four area artists. Each exhibition perfectly suits the theme of these restaurants. Artwork in all locations were created by active members of the Westfield Art Association and almost all of the artwork exhibited around town is available for sale by contacting the WAA at westfieldartassociation@gmail.com
