Wellington Issues Call To Young Artists

There’s a new opportunity for youthful Wellington artists to see their creations on public display. Wellington is teaming up with the Wellington Art Society for the “Student Art Program,” which puts youth artwork on display at the Wellington Community Center and the Village Park gymnasium.

High school students who either live in Wellington or attend a Wellington school are invited to deliver their original works of art to the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Suite 100) on Wednesday, Sept. 12 between 4 and 6 p.m. The exhibit will open the following day on Thursday, Sept. 13 and the artwork will be on display for a four-month rotation ending in January 2013. Make sure the artwork is framed. The Wellington Art Society will select the artwork for the exhibit.

Information and entry forms with program dates and guidelines are available from the Wellington Art Society at (561) 791-2194 as well as art teachers at Wellington’s schools.
