New Art at the Wellington Community Center

The Wellington Art Society has displayed its members' artwork at the Wellington Community Center for many years. It used to be at the upper level in that was called the "Card Room." Now we are hanging the art in the hallways of the ground floor. We have much more room to hang more paintings. We are pleased that quite a few of our new members have submitted art for this 3-month show. Here is some of their artwork.

"Wine" is an oil painting by Carl Maxwell. It is 29" x 25 1/2".
