Wellington National Golf Club Features Artwork from Local Chisholm Gallery
Wellington National Golf Club has announced a new partnership with the Wellington based Chisholm Gallery, owned by Jeanne Chisholm. Already a prominent local fixture in the golf, dining and event scenes, Wellington National will also join the realm of the international art world with help from Chisholm’s meticulously curated collection. The beautiful artwork now adorning the club’s walls is all available for purchase so that members and select guests may be able to enjoy it in their homes. As each piece is sold, a new exquisite piece will take its place.
“We are excited to enhance the appeal of Wellington National with Jeanne’s high quality art, and we hope that our members as well as their family and friends enjoy the latest improvement to the club,” said Doug Marty, co-owner of Wellington National Golf Club. “Jeanne has a great eye for art and I believe that Wellington National showcases it brilliantly. We look forward to selling pieces and making space for new ones.”
The distinguished collection of 20th and 21st century American & Continental art, including contemporary landscape, marine and equine paintings, and photographs, make up the collection that adorns the walls of the newly opened Champions Bistro, the hallways and locker rooms, as well as the main ballroom. Sporting scenes and portraits, still life paintings and notable holdings in American illustration add diversity and breadth to the unique library of art.
With the first batch recently installed, Chisholm Gallery will continue to provide Wellington National with a series of high-quality artworks and sculpture to be rotated throughout the year. The initial art installation took place just in time for the Grand Opening of the Champions Bistro, in which attendees could view and purchase the exquisite works. For three months, Wellington National members, families and guests will be able to enjoy the paintings that decorate the club, and at the conclusion of the display period, buyers will be able to take their new luxury artwork home for display, replaced by new featured works.
“We are very honored to have this cultural opportunity through Doug Marty and Wellington National to serve the local and seasonal residents of Wellington and the Palm Beaches,” said Chisholm, owner and founder of Chisholm Gallery. “The extraordinary site-the intersection of art and first-class golf-emphasizes Wellington National’s commitment to the preservation of the natural, cultural and scenic resources of Palm Beach County.”
Chisholm Gallery was founded in 1978 by Chisholm and her late husband, Hugh Jeremy Chisholm, a well-known businessman and polo player. The first gallery quickly acquired the largest collection of polo art for sale in the world, which has since expanded to include more equestrian, golf, abstract and other subjects. Chisholm Gallery offers items for a variety of tastes, from originals by well-known and highly desirable artists, to pristine collectibles, decorative pieces and even the works of promising up-and-coming artists on the verge of breaking into the art world’s major arenas. With a multitude of impeccable artwork at its disposal, Wellington National will be able to provide its members and guests with the luxury of viewing world-class art without making an extra trip to a gallery or museum, instead bringing it to them.
All are invited to take a tour of the club and experience all that Wellington National has to offer.
