"I'm a retired grant writer. Shortly after retiring, the pandemic reared its ugly head, pushing me back towards my love of photography. This work keeps my soul in check." Eileen Krugel, 2021

In 2021, The Art of Aging displayed 152 pieces submitted by 72 artists from 29 towns throughout Connecticut.

Sponsor the Event

Why is The Art of Aging Held in May?  Every year the nation celebrates Older Americans Month in May, recognizing the contributions of older adults in our communities. AOASCC joins this celebration by hosting an annual art exhibition, highlighting the talents of painters and photographers aged 60 and older.   

For seven years, we enjoyed lining our office walls with the artwork.  When the pandemic began, we knew the impact of this event was too important to cancel, so we moved to an virtual exhibition.  We have been touched by the amount of community support that we continue to see as we celebrate these local artists each year.

Why sponsor The Art of Aging?  From the artists who cannot even remember when they first picked up a paintbrush to those who discovered their love of art in the midst of the pandemic, this yearly exhibition provides a way for older adults to share their talents and stay involved in their community.  Through your support, we are able to provide this opportunity without a registration fee to our artists.

Your Support Makes a Difference

There are times that our clients have needs that available funding sources do not cover, such as an unpaid electric bill in the middle of a frigid winter or the out-of-pocket costs of a a chairlift. Donations received above the cost of the art show are added to the client fund so we can respond when we are needed most.
