Art By Local Equestrians On Display

The work of several local artists will be on display from Nov. 24 through Dec. 28 at the Paint Store at Ronald Shaffer Interiors, located at 1800 Upland Road in West Palm Beach.

The art of Ann Friedlander and Michele Hundt will be featured, as well as the jewelry of Lily Zilo. These three friends, part of the equestrian community in Wellington, also find time to pursue creative endeavors.

Zilo moved to Wellington from Rome with her husband and two daughters. She is a dedicated and successful international amateur dressage rider who competes regularly. She finds time to create beautiful jewelry that is uniquely appropriate for the South Florida lifestyle.

Hundt is the owner of ShoChic, an upscale boutique that sells dressage apparel. She numbers international riders among her customers, as well as amateurs and young riders with an eye for style. Her flair for color and design so apparent at ShoChic can be seen in her stunning paintings.

Friedlander moved to Wellington because it is the top place in the U.S. for dressage. Focused on her riding, she did not paint for a while. In 2013, following a serious accident, Shaffer encouraged her to resume painting. She is riding and painting now, and her colorful art ranges from delicate to bold.

The Paint Store at Ronald Shaffer Interiors is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Meet the artists on Sunday, Nov. 23 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. For more info., call (561) 832-5472.
