The Latest City Hall Show

In my last post, I showed photos of the artwork that was on display at the Wellington City Hall this summer. Now, I'm going to give you a sneak preview of a few pieces that are on display right now. Be sure and stop by City Hall on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 for a reception where you can not only see all the artwork but you can also meet the artists. Here's a few of the art pieces that you will see.

Leslie Pfeiffer uses painterly realism to create oil paintings of landscapes, coastal scenes, and rainforests. She is often inspired by her recent travels. She was born in Chicago, and began creating with sketching, painting, and sculpting with clay. Since moving to Florida she has taken classes and workshops and been mentored by these amazing artists: David McElroy, Caspar McCloud, Nancy Tilles, Laurie Snow Hein, and Nelson Shanks. Leslie continues to explore different mediums and techniques and is currently using encaustic to create vibrant abstract works.

Here is one of her oil paintings that you can see at City Hall, titled "Golden Orchids." It is 16" x 20", and can be purchased for $850.

Wellington City Hall Artwork

We have a new show of paintings at Wellington's City Hall, but in case you missed it, I'm going to show you what was on display over the summer. Every four months, we rotate new artwork by our members. It's on display in the first floor lobby and the hallways of the second floor. We are able to display 20 - 30 pieces, so it is quite a stunning show.

I'll show you each of the pieces quickly, but be sure and click on the artist's name which will link to their website and you can see more fabulous art.

Nancy Brown has been a member of the Wellington Art Society for about a year. She is a wonderful photographer who has traveled extensively throughout China. She can print her photographs on any size canvas. This first one is called "Eye of Giant Buddha."

Summer's Over -- Did You Miss These Shows?

After three months without membership meetings, we kicked off the new season with a lively welcome back to our members at our September Open House. We don't take time off from displaying our members' art, though. We had quite a few wonderful art exhibits this summer, and in case you missed them, I'm going to post some of the artwork here in the next few weeks.

First of all, one of our longest-running exhibits is our display of artwork at the City of Wellington's Community Center. We're all familiar with that space, because that is where we hold our monthly meetings. This artwork is located in the Card Room, and is seen by many groups who use that room as well as the large Grand Cypress Room for their meetings and events.
