Whole Foods Market cafe

  2635 SR7     Wellington, FL

 

 

The Whole Foods Market on SR7 in Wellington has a large cafe, lined with windows which offer nice natural lighting. It’s a perfect setting to display art and Wellington Art Society is pleased to partner with Lauren Belinsky of Whole Foods to bring this show to the communityWhole Foods will provide music, hot and cold appetizers, and drinks.

Artists often bring limited editions and prints to sell the evening of their reception.  There is a $5. fee to attend, which is used for WAS Scholarships for local art students pursuing a higher degree in art.

 

 

Adrianne Hetherington has been painting professionally since 1972.  She received an  Associate in Arts degree from Miami-Dade College, 1971.  She began her career as a textile art designer for Serbin Fashions in Miami, FL where she worked for six years.

 

In 1978 Adrianne opened HandPainted Originals and continued to design prints for the interior design trade and hand painted hundreds of yards of silk and cotton fabrics, rolls of wall paper, furniture, wall murals and faux finishes.  Her sample prints were on display in several design showrooms in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta and the DCOTA Building in Dania, FL.  In 1992, due to hurricane Andrew and an aching back, Adrianne closed HandPainted Originals and pursued the art of tile making.  She became a member of the Ceramic League of Miami and eventually a tile art instructor at the CLM.  Her unique technique of carving designs into hand cut clay tiles, firing them in a kiln and then glazing them with a special glass glaze, made for a very popular class.

“Serenity Shared” created for Palm Beach Co. AIPP, at Southwinds Golf Clubhouse, Boca Raton FL, is a series of 16 murals, depicting the native Florida flora and fauna. The course is host to wading birds, mammals and butterfly habitats. The 16 murals range in size: 2 main front entry murals at 4’tall x 9’wide, 2 heron front entry murals at 4’t x 2.25’w and 12 column murals at 4’t x 1’w.  The mural was created to entertain, educate and amuse.  Tracy wants the viewer to discover and “be surprised” each time they pass by.  Her intention is to fully capture the beauty and serenity of the natural environments and habitats that are maintained to exist and be shared by the visitors to Southwinds Golf Course.  Over 50 plant and animal species were incorporated.
