American Art Awards: “American Art Awards selects Evalyn Dunn Gallery as our Best in New Jersey and one of our Top 25 American Galleries and Museums for 2021.”

In 1958, this Dunn family effort was originally created as a casual, local venue for the exhibition, framing and preservation of art — but over the years Evalyn Dunn Gallery has exceeded everyone’s expectations to become a significant world-renowned gallery. When Evalyn Dunn first opened her art gallery in the 1950’s, people marveled at her ability to hold a full time job, run an art gallery and raise a family. Fortunately, her supportive husband, Benjamin, worked with her and consequently Evalyn Dunn Gallery prospered.

In its 63rd year, the east coast treasure showcases the finest 20th Century American and European art, works of acclaimed artists from all countries, including Graciela Rodo Boulanger of Bolivia, Ron Hedrick of Canada, Gordon Wilson of Scotland, and American artists such as Christine Alfery, Patrick Antonelle, Callie Campbell, Jon Friedman, Mary Johnston and photographer Frederick Ballet.

Others include Stephanie Amato, Linda Apple, Daniel Azoulay, Beatty, Natalia Bessonova Michele Byrne, William Bunting, Giovanna Calzolari, Daniel Carvalho, C.M. Cooper,, Cook, Cora, Alicia Cotter, Cybele, Degas, Kate Faust,Ilario Fratini, William Gramley, Karla Gudeon, Ilan Harel, Jessica Hedrick, Ian Kochberg, Lee, Mercurio D’Anchise, Miro, Natale, Pruna Milanes Pv Giancarlos, Alicia Quaini, Renoir, Salzman, Jane Seymour, Sissman, Ilene Smith, Murray Smith, John Triarsi, Rosalia Verdun, Jessica Wasilewski and Whistler.

Star Ledger‘s Sally Friedman writes: Jacie can still remember doing her homework after school in the back area of her parent’s art gallery.”

Today, Jaclyn Civins owns and runs the gallery. She fondly recalls ambitious mom Evalyn and dad Benjamin importing oil paintings from Europe sixty years ago. As the business has grown and changed locations over the last decades, Civins has left her own imprint on a business that honors what her parents began. Due to changing times the gallery has begun to diversify and has expanded to include jewelry, art glass, gifts and religious items.

Jaclyn Civins was voted “Westfield’s Small Business Person of the year for 2018” by Alignable. The gallery was also selected as one of the top galleries in the US by Art Design Consultants.This year it was selected as Best of 2021 Westfield — Art Gallery. The Westfield Award Program was created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions and organizations in and around Westfield, NJ.
