Art In The Park Recap

On June 9th, members of the Westfield Art Association met in Mindowaskin Park for an afternoon of art making under the sun. Member and non-member artists alike, set up in the park to capture the beauty of this popular Westfield spot.

There were artists using a variety of mediums: oil, watercolor, acrylic, sketching, ink, photography and more. The visitors and the artists all enjoyed the beautiful environment. All enjoyed observing the artists’ progress, interacting and asking questions.

There were art kits available, and several people were inspired to join in on the art making. People were also able to try traditional Ebru marbling.

We could not have asked for better weather for our event. We even got a little spot in The Westfield Leader.

WAA hosts the Westfield Weavers

On Sunday May 19 South Ave Arts welcomed the Westfield Art Association and the Westfield Weavers Guild for a relaxing afternoon of fiber arts. The Westfield Weavers brought a great variety of looms and fibers and welcomed everyone to both enjoy the demonstrations as well as fully participate. There was even a spinning wheel in operation!

Attendees were fascinated as we observed the variations in color, pattern and textures available to artists who weave fibers into art. It was a true delight as these knowledgeable artisans demonstrated their craft, answered questions and shared their passion throughout the warm spring afternoon. A wonderful event with a beautiful exhibit and informative demonstrations

– thank you to the Westfield Weavers Guild!
