Thanks to Westfield, there is an art gallery in Wheaton, exhibiting and selling original artwork by local artists. The Wheaton Arts Parade Gallery is on the lower level of Westfield Wheaton shopping center next to Entrance 11. Ninety percent of sales revenue goes directly to the artists. In exchange, they volunteer to manage the gallery and three of the artists have studios at the gallery. The WAP Gallery is a showcase for artists from Montgomery County
February 6 - April 25
As we move toward Spring, the WAP Gallery asked local artists to exhibit art that represents the theme "Blossom." Of course that means flowers, but even more it is life unfolding, coming into being. Every painting is an expression of the artist's imagination blossoming on the canvas and even above the canvas as hundreds of origami cranes and butterflies float from the ceiling of the gallery. We hope you will visit the gallery to see first hand this exhibit of original art. WAP is pleased to introduce six new artists to Wheaton in the Blossom show. If you are unable to visit the gallery, WAP invites you to our virtual collection of local artists, below.
