January, 2015 – Wellington Art Society’s Art Fest on the Green
The Wellington Art Society will present its tenth annual Art Fest on the Green at the Wellington Amphitheater at 12100 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington on Saturday, January 30th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, January 31st from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Art Fest is a celebration of art, of life, and enjoying a wonderful day in the beautiful amphitheater.
The juried fine art and craft show will feature artists from around the country showing off unique designs across multiple mediums, including painting, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, textiles, photography and more.
The goal is to bring art and community together. Art Fest gives the community an opportunity to interact with the artists, learn more about the creative processes, different mediums and techniques and learn about the artists’ lives.
This year’s judge will be Ted Matz, who is an educator, artist and highly regarded art judge.
Several artists will be working on site and the 50 fine artists participating in the festival were selected for their creativity, mastery of the technique and level of excellence.
The four co-chairs for Art Fest, Leslie Pfeiffer, Adrianne Hetherington, Faye Ford and President Sandy Axelrod will be on hand to assist visitors as they navigate through a children’s art activity area where art can be created, shared and taken home, as well as through the fine art selection by professional and emerging artists from across the region displaying their original artwork. With a wide variety of art for sale –nothng manufactured or reproduced -there is something for everyone in the show.
The 100 members of the Wellington Art Society, founded in 1981, cover a vast variety of mediums. The group is open to all artists and provides a place for regional and local artists to share their work and their craft.
The proceeds from Art Fest help finance the Wellington Art Society’s long standing Scholarship Program.
