Wilson Avenue Loft Artists ( WALA ) was founded in 2007. Located on the border of Norwalk and Rowayton, WALA provides 15 studio spaces for artists working in a variety of media, including painting, collage, printmaking, sculpture and photography.
WALA’s goal is to provide a supportive environment for making artwork and connections to the arts community. Our annual Open Studio Weekend nurtures relationships between individual artists and the community through sharing our work and the resulting discussions.
“We are very proud to be part of a thriving Norwalk arts scene”, says Lori Glavin (co-founder). “Our members are accomplished professional artists who in addition to making art, also contribute to the community as educators, arts advocates and volunteers.”
