Wellington Artistsí Gallery and Art Centre, 6142 Wellington Rd 29, RR4 Fergus, opened for its 6th season on April 27, 2013.
2013 finds our Membership strong and presenting a varied selection of high quality original new work. We currently have 31 of our 52 Members exhibiting in the Gallery. Our Members work in many media....... painting, sculpture, drawing, textiles, pottery, glass/mosaics, photography, carving and jewelry. Our visitors will find the work of many of their favourite artists here again. As well we have added some new Members who are bringing some new styles and techniques for the viewing and purchasing pleasure of our visitors...our loyal supporters. One will find that the Members change their work frequently so the presentation is always new and fresh. Our Featured Artist changes every month , as does our Guest Artist. We are enjoying some wonderful exhibits of excellent work this season. You are asked to check our Guest Artist page and our Featured Artists in the side-bar.
Our Members continue to be committed to supporting the community by participation in local events, such as the fund raiser for the new Guelph Public Library. Our Members are donating two gift certificates for $250 each to help fund the new Library. They are part of a Silent Auction to be held at Victoria East Golf Course on Sept 13. Our members also support the Fergus Home Show, Colwyn Farm Rare and Fancy Poultry Show, Culture Days and providing an opportunity for art appreciation by the placing of our work in local Libraries and business establishments such as Meridian Credit Unions ( 5 branches); Knapp's Country Market, Wellington Road 124; Butcher Furniture , Hillsburg and the Brew House in Fergus. Our Sculpture Park is a popular feature of the Gallery and offers some unique outdoor pieces. Due to the outstanding success of our Juried Exhibition in 2012 , we are planning another October 1-28, 2013, which will again permit area artists an opportunity to gain recognition by exhibiting in our Gallery at another prestigous event. Prizes will again be awarded to honour those who excel. The Call for Entry for this Juried Exhibition is here on the website. Deadline to enter is Aug. 15
We are forever grateful for the support we receive from the local community, from those who make the Gallery their destination and from the tourists who stop as they pass through the area.
