Trinidad Tidings: Hints of spring at Westhaven Center for the Arts

The Westhaven Center for the Arts continues to add new art to its virtual Community Gallery, viewable at Uplifting hints of spring can be viewed there now in recent landscapes by Ann Anderson and Nancy Rickard. All local artists are invited to participate and may submit photos at [email protected].

WCA also currently seeks submissions from young artists (25 years and under) for an Emerging Artists Showcase entitled “Through the Looking Glass; Young Icons of the Future.” 

This provides young artists an opportunity to share artwork and experiences during these challenging times. The project will provide an Artists’ Space Online for open dialogues about artwork and creative process. Contact Jolie Einem at [email protected] for details.

For online exhibits, artists are not required to become members of WCA, as the organization wishes to support all local artists, and “bring our community together in creative play.” View these galleries, learn more about the center’s continued online events such as dance parties, movie nights and outdoor performances; read news updates or consider donating or becoming a member at
