Wellington Art Society To Host Virtual Reception For ‘Vibrance’ Show April 28

The Wellington Art Society is presenting “Vibrance,” a juried virtual art show going on now through June 2. This exhibit features 20 artists and 65 original works of art by WAS members, including painting, photography, drawing, mixed media and more. All artwork is for sale, and a portion of the proceeds goes toward the group’s scholarship and outreach programs.

Awards will be presented by distinguished judge Chris Kling at a Zoom awards ceremony and reception on Wednesday, April 28 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The public is invited to this free event. Contact presidentofwas@gmail.com for the Zoom link.

The awards that will be given out are as follows: first, second and third place with honorable mentions. In addition, there will be a special prize awarded to one of the exhibiting artists based on a random drawing: a one-hour consultation with Rickie Leiter of The Rickie Report (www.therickiereport.com). The winning artists will talk about their works, inspiration and creative process at the awards reception.

The Wellington Art Society is delighted to have Kling, an award-winning artist, instructor and gallery owner, as the judge for Vibrance. She is represented by Palm City Art and Frame, and is the owner of Kling Gallery, Wine & Decor in Stuart. She is also on the faculty of the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta.

Vibrance Virtual Art Show is a free online event presented through Kunstmatrix, which is a unique and innovative platform that enables artists to create beautiful and realistic 3D versions of their artwork, displayed in a sophisticated 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.
