The Wellington Art Society held a reception Wednesday, Jan. 9 for the artists chosen to exhibit their work in the eighth annual Art in Public Places Program sponsored by the Village of Wellington. This successful program celebrates local artists by exhibiting their work throughout Wellington. Ten artists were selected to showcase their talents in oils, watercolors and photography. The 33 pieces vary in themes ranging from animals to landscapes and transition from the realistic to the abstract. Shown here, Talia Fradkin, Jeannette Parssi, Joanne Baker MacLeod and Hildegard Donavan pose in front of their artwork.
