WESTFIELD, NJ — Recently, American Art Awards named Evalyn Dunn Gallery in Westfield “Best Gallery in New Jersey” for 2014. 

The gallery, now located at 549 South Ave. West, was founded in 1958 by Evalyn and Benjamin Dunn. Today the family institution is operated by their younger daughter, Jaclyn Civins.

“We are elated,” said Civins. “I think that the gallery, which is named for our mother, stands out for our personalized customer service as well as our diversified selection of art, frames and gifts. My sister and I work hard to treat our customers to a stunning gallery experience whenever they enter our newly designed showroom. Our mom would be most proud to see that the tradition is continuing and the business is still going strong.”

Evalyn Dunn Gallery features a wide selection of paintings, graphic art and sculpture, from classical and contemporary art to modern and folk art. The gallery has a newly enlarged giftware department with gifts for all occasions including handblown art glass and judaica. They offer framing and even carry unique greeting cards.
