The Wellington Art Society will feature local pop artist Nicole Galluccio at its Wednesday, Feb. 10 meeting at the Bootz Cultural Arts Center (420 State Road 7, Suite 118). A meet-and-greet will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a member spotlight and a brief meeting. The main attraction will be the demonstration by Galluccio, followed by a raffle.
Galluccio has been painting and creating her pop art in South Florida for 20 years. She graduated with a degree in studio art from Florida Atlantic University and began creating her own unique style. Her paintings combine 1960s mod fashion and style, comic, music and media tabloids, spinning them into a visual explosion of color against a black and white paper collage background.
Galluccio often includes headlines and wording that exemplify her emotions. She is constantly evolving and continues to experiment with her technique, beginning to use imagery from other sources, including old children’s books and vintage magazines. Galluccio has exhibited at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, the Continuum Pop Up Art Exhibition, the Boca Museum of Art Artist’s Guild and several other local galleries.
