Canopy Way by GG Gonzalez
GG Gonzalez is an accomplished local photographer who has been interested in photography since she was seven years old and received her first camera from her mother, a five dollar 110 film one bought at a yard sale. For years she photographed all of her family and friends’ activities, creating a cherished window to the past.

Phantom by GG Gonzalez
GG loves to travel and has taken working vacations in Africa, Asia and India, collecting a treasure trove of images. Many of these focus on wildlife and the natural world. She is able to share her experiences and emotional connection with nature through her “Travel Gallery”, compiled while visiting some of the world’s most picturesque locations. For viewers it is like taking a personal journey to faraway places.

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 35th year.

Art Fest on the Green Wrap Up

Mayor Bob Margolis and his wife Linda with Susan Mosely
Art Fest Committee Sandy Axelrod, Faye Ford, Leslie Pfeiffer and Adrianne Hetherington
Our 10th annual art show Art Fest on the Green took place the last weekend of January. With a week of nothing but rain, rain and more rain just prior to our event we had to have the artists set up in the parking lot instead of the Wellington Amphitheater lawn. But it worked out perfectly! The sun came out and we had a glorious weekend for art and music. The event was a total success. Thank you to all who worked so hard to make this happen. It is only through the support of our members that we can continue to put on such amazing events. These events help to raise the funds we need to give scholarships to high school seniors who are furthering their education in art.

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, life, and bringing art and community together in a beautiful outdoor setting.
     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 four co-chairs for Art Fest, Leslie Pfeiffer, Adrianne Hetherington, Faye Ford, President Sandy Axelrod and WAS Volunteers 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 country displaying their original artwork.  With a wide variety of original art for sale there is something for everyone in the show. It is a fantastic opportunity to take home an original work of art and a have a great story to share about the artist.  


Live acoustic music will be performed by Bobby G. and his friends during Show hours. Food Trucks will be on site offering a delicious variety of food.

    The 100 members of the Wellington Art Society, founded in 1981, represent a wide variety of mediums and experience.  The group is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, providing both local and regional artists a platform to share their work, learn more about their craft, and serve the community through their art.
