Wellington Community Center  

2150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.  Wellington, FL

Carol Ann Sherman

Carol Ann Sherman, “Princess of Yupo”

 

Carol Ann considers her life “as a major work of art ~ full of whimsy and lush colors.”  When The Rickie Report looks at her art work, you can feel her high energy and effervescent personality! Her paintings have been described as being “characterized by a strength of composition, a recognizable line quality, and a layering of color on color and tone on tone. Somewhat of an experimental artist, Carol Ann’s style is contemporary representationalism.”

 

Carol Ann is a well known instructor who travels around the United States.  She is going to demonstrate and share some of her techniques using traditional watercolor, batik on rice paper, watercolor on Yupo, and drawing. She is currently working on a series of books and videos demonstrating her amazing watercolor skills and techniques.

Carol Ann shares, ” My paintings focus on the basic elements of style which I consider to be important, in two dimensional art. There is nothing more imperative than composition and to relay the message on two dimensional surface. A majority of my work is executed on Yupo which is a synthetic paper, originally made for printing purposes.”

 Sherman explains that ,”because this paper has no cotton content it is non-absorbing. This means that whatever pigment I apply to the paper remains on the surface of the paper and doesn’t fade away. I have selected this non-traditional type of watercolor painting because it allows me the freedom to record my inner emotions in a manner acceptable and understandable to most viewers.”


She adds, “I like to live on the wild, funky, whimsical, irreverent side of life and like to take my paintings there with me.”

In addition to their monthly meeting, WAS is sending out its Annual Scholarship forms to all the Palm Beach County public high schools. The applications are due April 12, and WAS will be giving $500 – $1,000 scholarships.  The Rickie Report had an opportunity to meet one of 2011 scholarship winners, Flannery Winchester. You’ve probably seen Flannery’s artwork on the walls of Palm Beach International Airport!

Wellington Art Society Offers Art Scholarships

 

The Wellington Art Society is currently accepting applications for its one-time $500 to $1,000 college art scholarships for graduating seniors who live in and attend high school in Palm Beach County.

 

  • The scholarship is available to students planning a college major in visual arts at either a 2 or 4-year institution. Applications may be obtained from their school art teachers or from the Wellington Art Society by contacting Suzanne Redmond at sredmond75@comcast.net

 

  • Requirements for the scholarship are as follows: Students must reside in and attend high school in Palm Beach County. Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in visual arts and an overall GPA of 2.0. Three art classes in high school must have been completed. An artist’s statement and career goal must be submitted along with 7-10 photographs for viewing, a letter of recommendation from a faculty member, and the transcript of the student.

 

  • The application package for the scholarship is due April 12, 2013 and should be sent to the Wellington Art Society, P.O. Box 212943, Royal Palm Beach, FL  33421-2943.

 

The Wellington Art Society Scholarship, established in 2001, has provided 25 talented young artists with funds for their art-related expenses such as art/photographic supplies and books or tuition for visual art classes. Proceeds from the Art Society’s annual art exhibitions and sales, such as ArtFest on the Green and Whole Foods Market Art Shows, support the scholarship fund and its other programs.

 

Flannery is now a member of WAS and is currently enrolled in the Maryland Institute College of Art. You may have seen her artwork around town. She has exhibited at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery in Lake Worth; ArtsGarage in Delray Beach; and she has artwork through February 27 at the Palm Beach International Airport and through May 1 at the Wellington City Hall. It is with great pleasure that the Wellington Art Society awards scholarships to such deserving individuals, and we are thrilled to see Flannery’s artwork around the county.
