Friday Plans -- See Some Art

I love going to artist receptions at local galleries. It's a fun, social night out. I often get to see an artist's work that is new to me, but usually I'm attending to support an artist friend. This Friday I'm heading to Whole Foods Market to see oil painter Nancy Tilles and her amazing nature-inspired art. Yes, Whole Foods Market. Our store in Wellington is using their eat-in cafe to showcase talented local artists. They've filled the walls of the cafe with over a dozen paintings.

Nancy Tilles is an award winning artist, well known for her paintings and portraits. Her paintings are joyful expressions brought to life through color and form. Influenced by living in South Florida for over 30 years, her images often reflect a tropical theme, rich in color.

Nancy will be bringing additional paintings the night of the event, including a new triptych she will unveil for the first time. If you'd like to attend this event Friday, October 21 from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., you may RSVP to Whole Foods Market at 561-904-4000. Whole Foods Market is on SR7 in Wellington, south of Forest Hill Blvd.
