The Westport Art Group was formed by a group of amateur and professional artists early in 1956. The members held classes in each others’ homes. The first Community Show was held in July, 1956 in the Westport Point School. It attracted a large crowd. In 1971, Elizabeth Yeomans Booth donated land to WAG “in memory of Edward, Julia and their son, Andrew Yeomans, for the encouragement of the arts and crafts”. She stipulated that a building was to be erected on the property within two years. The members raised funds and worked hard to do that and that is how 1740 Main Road came about.
The mission of the Westport Art Group is to stimulate and promote the appreciation and encouragement of the arts and crafts.



Dedee Shattuck Gallery, along with the acres of meadows and forest behind the Gallery, embodies Shattuck’s lifelong appreciation of art, environment, and cultural standard.
Along with monthly painting, sculpture, drawing, and multi-media exhibitions, the Gallery hosts lectures and presentations by writers, musicians, and naturalists. The goal is to produce the same sense of discovery and exploration for the viewer that Shattuck has experienced through a life in the arts.
Exhibitions include noted international, national, regional, and emerging artists. The inaugural exhibit, 5 June 2011, highlights the talent of artists living and working within a fifty-mile radius of Westport. Subsequent shows feature artists from ever-broadening places and time periods, establishing a cultural hub in the heart of Westport.
