The Wellington Art Society’s first meeting of the new year will be followed by a collage demonstration by one of its member’s, local artist Adrianne Hetherington.
Hetherington began her career in 1972 as a textile designer in Miami. Her wallpaper books and hand-painted fabric designs were parts of collections in interior design showrooms in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and the DCOTA building in Dania, FL. She also paints murals and has recently added to her repitoire, handmade tiles with her own carving and glazing technique.
She was a tile-art instructor at the Ceramic League of Miami for three years, 1998 to 2001, before moving to Royal Palm Beach. She also worked as art director of an 8 by 20 foot tile mural at Baptist Children’s Hospital in Miami. Her work has been on display from Miami to Palm Beach in exhibitions that include Art in Public Places in both Wellington and PBIA. Among her awards are the People’ Choice Award.
