The Art of Aging
Plan to be part of our annual art exhibition!
The Art of Aging is a celebration of creativity expressed by people over the age of 60 who have discovered the satisfaction of blending art and life. Some of our artists “discovered” their passion for creating art late in life, when, other responsibilities diminished and there was new-found time to pursue personal interests. Other artists have been creating art since childhood. Each has come to recognize the unique place art has in their lives.
With age, art and life become one. — Georges Braque
