10th Annual Art Fest on the Green

The Wellington Art Society will present its 10th 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, 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 goal is to bring art and community together.  Art Fest gives the community an opportunity to interact with the artists, learn more about their creative process, different mediums and techniques and learn about the artists’ lives.
     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, 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. 
      The proceeds from Art Fest help finance the Wellington Art Society’s long standing Scholarship Program.
