The Wellington Art Society is participating in Artscapes, a virtual exhibit scheduled from Nov. 1 until Jan. 4. This exhibit features 25 artists and 80 original artworks by Wellington Art Society members, including stained glass, handmade paper, photography, painting and more. All artwork is for sale, and a portion of proceeds go toward scholarship and outreach programs.
Artwork showcased in the virtual exhibit can be seen on the Wellington Art Society web site through the Kunstmatrix tool. Kunstamatrix is a unique and innovative platform that enables artists to create beautiful and realistic 3D versions of their artwork, displayed in a sophisticated 3D virtual exhibition space. Visitors can view artwork one of several ways, including moving themselves around the exhibit using the arrows that appear on screen or by using the cursor. A guided tour is also available as an option.
“The virtual exhibit is a great way to exhibit art while many galleries and other exhibit sites are still closed,” said Erica Kyle, committee chair for Artscapes.
All artwork is for sale, and a portion of the proceeds are used in outreach initiatives such as the Wellington Art Society Scholarship Program.
Established in 2001, the program provides scholarships to talented young artists for art-related expenses and tuition costs. Over the past decade, the Wellington Art Society is proud to have awarded more than $90,000 to more than 75 recipients.
