Wellington Art Society member Toni Willey is the current featured solo artist at Whole Foods Market Wellington Café. A Public Reception will be held at and hosted by the Whole Foods Market Wellington Staff on Friday, August 26, 2016 from 6:30pm until 8pm. Delicious appetizers and wine will be served along with live music and door prizes. The Art Society asks a $5 donation which will go to their Scholarship Fund. It will be a lovely reception for the artist and friends and a great way to start the weekend! Toni is a highly accomplished artist and will be showing her series of endangered species entitled “The Vanishing”. The Exhibit is open now.
Toni Willey began drawing at an early age but her exceptional talent surfaced when she began painting. Her teachers said she painted the way Mozart played music; it just rolled off her fingers. After high school she received a National Scholastic Award of Merit from the St. Louis Art Museum. She attended Art Institute and Foundation classes at Washington University and St. Louis University, where she studied all the fine art disciplines. Her painting style is photo realistic and semi abstract done in acrylics, mixed media and watercolor.
