Artists will be juried in.  All Fine Art and Fine Craft work must be designed and created by the artist.  Prints and duplications of your original artwork will be allowed, but the majority of the booth must be original art created by the artist.  Painting, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, textiles, woodworking, photography and other mediums will be considered.

 

This show will take place at the beautiful Wellington Amphitheater at 12100 W. Forest Hill Blvd. in Wellington, Florida during the peak Equestrian and Tourist Season and is free to the public. The Amphitheater includes an outdoor stage featuring live and recorded music throughout the event.  Food vendors and a youth art activity area will also be present.   Saturday morning, the City of Wellington will feature its Green Market in the adjacent parking lot.

 

 

Set up will occur Friday afternoon, January 30th, 2015.  Security will be provided overnight Friday and Saturday.  Artists will provide and set up their own 10’ x 10’ white tent, closing the sides overnight.

 

The Wellington Art Society will be advertising this event in the Palm Beach Post and the Town-Crier newspapers, as well as to over 1,200 local Chamber of Commerce members, The Rickie Report, “Where the Shows Are” and extensive social media.  Artists will have the opportunity to purchase ads in the event booklet, which will be offered free to art show attendees.
