The Wellington Art Society will meet on Wednesday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wellington Community Center. There will be a meet-and-greet, followed by a brief meeting and a watercolor demonstration by Marilyn “Bobbin” Salisbury.
Salisbury is a well-known local watercolor and acrylic artist. She began as a self-taught artist but later studied at the Armory Art Center, the Women of Visual Arts Studio in Delray Beach and through private lessons and workshops with well-known artists.
Her love of boats and the sea came from her father taking her down to the docks and dreaming about owning a boat someday. Her paintings are on display locally, and she recently had a three-month solo exhibit at the Wellington Whole Foods Gallery.
Salisbury teaches beginning and intermediate traditional watercolor classes, as well as wet-on-wet techniques. She also teaches acrylic classes and a “paint-a-party” class where each student completes a painting in two hours.
