Begun as a special interest group within the Westfield Art Association, the Contemporary Art Group re-defined “contemporary” to mean “alive and currently producing art.” The CAG is a collegial organization of working artists who meet on a regular basis to advance their art interests. They are a supportive group where there is mutual respect among members, where members share ideas, provide information about exhibit opportunities, and describe their own artistic development.
Since their opening in September 2013, Gallery U Boutique has quickly positioned itself as an arts resource for the Westfield and surrounding communities by holding monthly art exhibits that focus on the talents of local artists, as well as showcasing original unique merchandise created by local artisans.
Gallery U Boutique is owned by Universal Institute, a rehabilitation center for adults with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Gallery U acts as an extension of UI’s vocational training program which helps bring TBI clients back into the workforce and community through their daily operational work at Gallery U. They hold monthly group art exhibitions and work closely with the community on various events throughout the year. Gallery U Boutique is located at 439 South Ave West in Westfield, NJ.
