WAA Member Show At The Rialto

We have been very lucky to have a fantastic show at the former Rialto theater, now known as The Center For Creativity, in Westfield.

Despite the fact that we had to shut down the show early due to Covid, we had a fantastic opening night, and quite a few attendees while the show was up. We also wound up with a great amount of art sales! Congratulations to all of our artists participating in the show.
