The next Wellington Art Society meeting will be held Wednesday, Nov. 13 in the card room at the Wellington Community Center. Light refreshments will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m. The general meeting begins at 7 p.m.
As always, the evening is for artists and art lovers to hear about all of the exciting projects and initiatives that the society is involved in and to find out how to participate.
A special presentation by Tracy Rosof-Petersen will begin at 7:30 p.m. Rosof-Petersen, creates art for public spaces, facilitates creative clay and craft workshops, and is a teaching artist for the Center for Creative Education. She has studied at the University of Central Florida, California State University and the University of Madrid.
The presentation will be on the process of applying for a Palm Beach County public art project, getting the award and creating the sculpted clay tile murals for Southwinds Golf Course in Boca Raton. It will also include an overview of her other collaborative public art projects in Palm Beach County.
“Serenity Shared” at the Southwinds clubhouse is a series of 16 murals depicting the native Florida flora and fauna. The mural was created to entertain, educate and amuse. Rosof-Petersen wanted the viewer to discover and be surprised each time they pass by.
