The Wellington Art Society will feature a demonstration by member Edrian Thomidis on Wednesday, Feb. 13. The meeting and demonstration will take place at the Wellington Community Center. The meet-and-greet will begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by a member spotlight and brief meeting. The evening will conclude with Edrian’s demonstration and a unique art raffle.
Thomidis’ artistic talent was recognized at an early age, and she attended the University of Florida’s New World School of the Arts. After graduation, she worked as a creative director, designing web sites, original logos, business cards and posters for South Florida businesses. She moved on to producing web sites for large corporations such as Sony, Pepsi and Microsoft. She became proficient in programming, usability and information architecture.
Outside the corporate world, Thomidis illustrated many images used in books, magazines and on shirts. In 2014, she suffered the loss of a loved one, and in looking for an outlet for her grief, took a ceramics class at the Armory Art Center. She found working with clay presented a challenge and led to her creating unique sculptures. Her demonstration will show her evolution as an artist and how she applies decorations and patterns to her sculptures.
Thomidis is a member of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, the Wellington Art Society, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and the Women in the Visual Arts Organization. Her sculptures are in many private collections around the world and in regional galleries. She has won many awards for her work.
