Wellington Reaches Out To Student Artists

There’s an opportunity for young Wellington artists to see their creations on public display. The village is teaming with the Wellington Art Society for a Student Art Program, which puts youth artwork on display at the Wellington Community Center.

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. 18 between 4 and 6 p.m. The exhibit will open the following Monday, Sept. 23, and the artwork will be on display for a four-month rotation ending in January. All artwork should be framed. The Wellington Art Society will select the artwork for the exhibit.

Information and entry forms with program dates and guidelines are available by calling the Wellington Art Society at (561) 791-2194, the Village of Wellington at (561) 791-4082 or from art teachers at high schools in the Wellington area.
