In the summer of 2019, Bev Hennessy decided to take a step back as Director of Village Art Center to spend more time with her husband Bob, her dog Daisy, and a room chock full of painting supplies just waiting for her to enjoy.
Bev’s diligence in bringing in nationally known artists to the community through Village Art Workshops was something that Wanda Boyd noticed on her first visit, and one of the reasons she moved to The Villages. Bev’s obvious love of the program was immediately shared by Wanda, and the two make a great team talking about all the workshops the program offers. When Bev decided to step back and hand her “baby” over to another, Wanda was more than happy to take the project to keep Village Art Center and Village Art Workshops part of the vibrant art community. Even though Bev is no longer the lead coordinator for the workshops, rest assured she is still a very important part of the program and a person to whom Wanda turns often for motivation and inspiration.
Wanda moved to The Villages in 2015, and immediately immersed herself in the art community by taking workshops through Village Art Center, joining the Village Art League and Visual Arts Association, and taking a leadership role in the art group Wet-N-Wild Watercolors. She has been painting in both watercolor and acrylic for ten years, studying under nationally known artist of Susan Stuller for five years, and has also taken various art workshops through the, you guessed it, Village Art Workshops! Wanda’s previous experience includes sales and marketing for an international food manufacturing firm along with various volunteer positions in her community, both past and present. Currently Wanda is the President of Citrus Watercolor Society located in Inverness, Florida.
