The Wellesley Society of Artists online juried show, “Spring is in the Air,” is now open and will run until Sept. 1. Celebrating new beginnings, renewal and growth, the exhibition features the work of 46 exhibiting artists.
The judge for the show, teacher and artist Kathy Anderson, will designate first, second and third place awards as well as honorable mention awards. In addition, viewers of the exhibition will be invited to vote for their favorite painting. The artist whose painting receives the most votes will be awarded the People’s Choice Award.
This show is made possible in part by a Wellesley Cultural Council grant.
