Art in Public Places -- City of Wellington

The City of Wellington has been running an Art in Public Places program for quite some time. The artwork changes about every three months. Anyone is welcome to submit their artwork to this program, and the artwork hangs in various public buildings around the City.

The Wellington Art Society hosted a reception for these artists at the beginning of their January meeting. Here are a few of the artists that night. Left to right: Talia Fradkin, Jeannette Pomeroy Parssi, Joanne Baker MacLeod, and Hildegard Donavan.

Talia is a student and also has art hanging in the Wellington Community Center in its student show. Her Art in Public Places pieces are on the first floor of Wellington City Hall, in the customer service area.

Currently there are 33 pieces from 12 artists hanging in the Community Center, City Hall, and Village Park. This painting is called "Wellington Sunset" and is hanging in City Hall.

Adrianne Hetherington (not pictured) has a mixed media painting in the Community Center. This one is titled "Serenity Island."

Hildegard Donavan has thirteen pieces hanging in the Community Center and Village Hall. Here are the ones hanging in the Community Center.

Joanne Baker MacLeod has two oil paintings in the Community Center. This one is called "Raccoon at Bird Feeder."

This one is called "Tina Climbing."

All of these buildings are public, and you can stop by to see the artwork during regular business hours.
