The Wellington Art Society’s next monthly meeting will take place Wednesday, Feb. 13 at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.).
The meeting opens with a social half-hour at 6:30 p.m., when the group will welcome 10 new members and see some of their work. There will also be a raffle of art and art-related items with the proceeds going to the Wellington Art Society Scholarship Fund. The general meeting begins at 7 p.m. At 7:30 p.m., there will be a demonstration by Jupiter paper artist Nina Fusco. Guests are welcome for a $5 fee.
Fusco’s paper sculpture passion began 20 years ago. Self-taught, she creates 3D paper sculptures by manipulating the flat surface of paper to give it life. She cuts, scores and bends the paper to create her 3D paper sculptures.
Fusco explores the contrast between light and dark shadows in these sculptures. Her numerous creations utilize hands to send a message of love, hope and working together to reach new heights. Fusco’s award-winning 3D paper sculpture pieces, collages, pencil drawings and photography have been exhibited in Palm Beach County galleries. For more on Fusco, visit www.nina3dpaper.com.
