The Westboro Gallery, which has been honored as Boston Magazine's "2008 Best of Boston Home Award in recognition of quality and excellence," presents works by and talented established and emerging Central New England artists and artisans. Since 1998 the not-for-profit cooperative's mission has been to bring art to the community and to support its members, enabling them to show and sell their work. The gallery also sponsors a high school art award and presents occasional cultural events for the public.
The purpose of The Westboro Gallery is to provide an environment for artists to show and sell their work and to enrich the cultural life of the community. The collection of work encompasses a diversity of styles ranging from realism to abstract. Media at the gallery includes: acrylic, art quilts, assemblage, beaded jewelry, bird carving, ceramics, collage, fiber arts, handmade books, lampwork glass, lithograph, mixed media, note cards, oil, paper sculpture, pastel, pencil, pen and ink, photography, relief printing, scarves and watercolor.
Westboro Gallery exhibitions change every two months and include a featured artist while also displaying the work of all the gallery members.
The gallery has satellite locations where art is shown and may be purchased. All locations are wheelchair accessible.
The gallery Board of Directors examines portfolios and works of those wishing to be juried in for membership at its monthly meetings.
