For the final 2nd Sunday event of the year, Downtown Westfield will be debuting an Art Walk on October 14 from 12-4pm. The Art Walk is intended to attract people to visit our galleries and stores, to browse, shop and celebrate all of the arts, including paintings, books, decorative home design items, hand crafted jewelry, artistic accessories & more.
We encourage attendees to walk around Downtown Westfield and enjoy our variety of shops. Downtown merchants will be participating by exhibiting works of talented artists, having music in their stores, offering cranberry related products, featuring artistic decorative items and accessories, showcasing hand-crafted items & more!
The talents of noted artists Harry and his wife Wende Devlin will be celebrated at this event. Harry was the illustrator and Wende was the author of 28 children’s books including the well known Cranberry series, which features illustrations and references of Westfield. The couple lived in nearby Mountainside. In addition, Harry Devlin illustrated many Westfield landmarks and streetscapes, including the Miller Cory House, the North Side Train Station, E. Broad St., and The Presbyterian Church. Some of his drawings are hanging in the Westfield Library, Reeve House, and the Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce.
Hope to see you at the Walk!
