The COVID-19 pandemic has made this year difficult for many artists. But for longtime Armory Art Center instructor and artist Sam Perry, it was a colon cancer diagnosis and not the coronavirus that has put his health and livelihood in peril. 



Perry, who has been an instructor at the Armory for more than 20 years, lacks health insurance to cover some of the costs for his cancer treatment. “Sam is one of our longest-standing instructors, who has poured his heart and soul into the Armory,” said Executive Director Tom Pearson. “It’s so important to support each other in these times, and we want to do anything we can to support Sam.”




Original Artworks by Vicki Siegel, Renata Rodrigues, Maxine Spector, Anthony Burks Sr.



During the event, if someone is interested in purchasing a work, they will make the donation directly to Sam’s GoFundMe page and show an event coordinator the proof of donation and they can then take the artwork. All artwork not sold that evening will still be available for purchase on Instagram.


Original Artworks by Cassandra Nordenbrock, Deborah Bigeleisen, Michael Blair



The art community has responded to their fellow artist’s needs like a family – with creativity and generosity. They have donated their artworks and Sam will receive 100% of the proceeds.

“The Magic” by Vickie Siegel



Vickie Siegel holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Illinois and has studied toward a Master of Fine Arts degree at Tyler School of Art in Rome. She has been an art and creative director in advertising in Milan, Italy, Chicago and South Florida. She is a now a full time working artist, passionate instructor of painting at the Armory Art Center and Old School Square Creative Arts School and a Golden Artist Educator.



“Inner Strength” by Vickie Siegel

Vickie’s art combines painting and photography, blending the two art forms in a process that results in images both real and imaginary. These works are transformed by using acrylic paint and image transfers from her photographs. The details are found in layers often revealing something forgotten or missing from actual experiences.  Her works are in many private and corporate collections. She shows in many South Florida exhibits and galleries and is a member of many art organizations.



The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization, celebrating its 35th year.

It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.
