The Wellington Art Society will feature the work of local artist Manon Sander at its final meeting of the season on Wednesday, May 11 at the Bootz Cultural Art Center (420 State Road 7, Suite 118). A meet and greet will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a member spotlight, a brief meeting and the featured demonstration.
Sander was born and raised in Bavaria and Berlin, Germany, spending her days roaming around her village while drawing and painting her impressions of the world. She is always looking for new painting spots.
Sander painted murals professionally in Chicago and studied oil painting under the tutelage of well-known painters in San Francisco and southern California. Over the years, she has developed her own unique style cherished by collectors and students.
Sander moved to Florida in 2010 and is thrilled that living here provides her with a never-ending stream of inspiration. She is connected to the ocean and the beach, fascinated by surfers, sea creatures, people walking on the beach, boats and birds.
Sander’s use of light on ordinary subjects creates unique and beautiful paintings. She aims to share her love of life through paintings that reflect the color, light and joy that surrounds her.
Sander currently teaches classes at the Lighthouse Art Center Gallery in Tequesta. She recently completed an exhibit there, and is also showing at the Brewhouse Gallery in Lake Park.
“Painting for me is a source of endless joy,” she said. “I hope to share that with you through my work.”
