Art Fest On The Green Returns To Wellington Amphitheater Jan. 26-27

The Wellington Art Society will present its 13th annual Art Fest on the Green at the Wellington Amphitheater (12100 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington) on Saturday, Jan. 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Art Fest on the Green is a celebration of creativity and artistic excellence bringing art and community together in a beautiful outdoor setting. Support from community partners and sponsors helps create a favorite family friendly event many look forward to each year. Proceeds from Art Fest on the Green help fund the Wellington Art Society’s long-standing scholarship program and other art outreach programs.

The juried fine art and fine craft show will feature artists from around the country showing original artwork across multiple mediums, including painting, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, textiles, photography and more. Many artists will be working on site. The 55 fine artists participating in the festival were selected for their creativity, mastery of technique and level of excellence. Awards will be presented to artists for best in show, first place, second place, third place and honorable mention.

Art Fest on the Green gives visitors an opportunity to interact with the artists; learn more about their creative process, different mediums and techniques; and hear about the artists’ inspiration and accomplishments. Face-to-face contact with the artists in a beautiful setting adds to the lifetime experience of owning artwork and creates an extra dimension.

Children of all ages will have fun creating their own original work of art to take home at the “Young at Art” Children’s Art Activity Area. Live acoustic music will be performed by popular professional local and regional musicians during show hours. Food trucks will be on site offering a variety of delicious food.

Art Fest Director Leslie Pfeiffer and Wellington Art Society volunteers will be on hand to assist visitors as they navigate through the fine art selection. With a wide variety of original art for sale, there will be something for everyone in the show. It will be a fantastic opportunity to support the arts, take home original works of art and have a great story to share about the artists and their work.

The Wellington Art Society, a nonprofit charitable organization, has more than 100 members and provides a platform for artists of all mediums to share their work, learn more about their craft and serve the community through their art. For more info., visit
