The Wellington Art Society (WAS) has been supporting the advancement of arts in the Palm Beach
community since 1981 with the intent to encourage young artists to pursue art careers, provide
programming that expands art in public places, and to make art accessible within the community daily.
The WAS Scholarship Program was established in 2001 to provide scholarships to talented young artists
for art related College and University expenses and tuition costs. Over the past 2 decades WAS is proud
to have awarded over $100,000 to students within our community. Past recipients of the WAS
Scholarship have gone on to become educators, illustrators, authors, curators, artistic directors,
professional artists and arts advocates.

To support the Scholarship Program, the WAS relies solely upon money raised from donations,
membership dues, monthly raffles, artist exhibitions, annual art shows, and commissions. To make a
donation, please visit www.WellingtonArtSociety.org

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 40th year. It is open to artists of
all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in
local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.
