The Wellington National Golf Club recently announced a new partnership with the Wellington-based Chisholm Gallery, owned by Jeanne Chisholm.
Already a prominent local fixture in the golf, dining and event scenes, Wellington National will also join the realm of the international art world with help from Chisholm’s meticulously curated collection, which is available for purchase.
“We are excited to enhance the appeal of Wellington National with Jeanne’s high-quality art, and we hope that our members, as well as their family and friends, enjoy the latest improvement to the club,” said Doug Marty, co-owner of Wellington National. “Jeanne has a great eye for art, and I believe that Wellington National showcases it brilliantly. We look forward to selling pieces and making space for new ones.”
The distinguished collection of 20th and 21st century American and Continental art, including contemporary landscape, marine and equine paintings, and photographs, make up the collection that adorns the walls of the newly opened Champions Bistro, the hallways and locker rooms, as well as the main ballroom. Sporting scenes and portraits, still life paintings and notable holdings in American illustration add diversity and breadth to the unique library of art.
With the first batch recently installed, Chisholm Gallery will continue to provide Wellington National with a series of high-quality artworks and sculpture to be rotated throughout the year.
The initial art installation took place just in time for the grand opening of the Champions Bistro, in which attendees could view and purchase the art. For three months, Wellington National members, families and guests will be able to enjoy the paintings that decorate the club, and at the conclusion of the display period, buyers will be able to take their new artwork home for display, replaced by new featured works.
“We are very honored to have this cultural opportunity through Doug Marty and Wellington National to serve the local and seasonal residents of Wellington and the Palm Beaches,” said Chisholm, owner and founder of Chisholm Gallery. “The extraordinary site — the intersection of art and first-class golf — emphasizes Wellington National’s commitment to the preservation of the natural, cultural and scenic resources of Palm Beach County.”
Chisholm Gallery was founded in 1978 by Chisholm and her late husband, Hugh Jeremy Chisholm, a well-known businessman and polo player.
