Seniors at Winchester Gardens to Exhibit Artwork
The Great Hall at Winchester Gardens will be the site of a senior art exhibit on Monday, March 12th from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and the public is invited to attend.
The exhibition will feature the works of 24 residents from the community at Winchester Gardens, a continuing care community in Maplewood. Various media will be represented, including watercolor, photography, oils, clay, needlecraft and charcoal sketches.
“The Resident Art Exhibit is a great way for our artists to showcase their talent to friends and family,” said Allison Halperin, director of recreation. “Some of the pieces symbolize their past while other works have been created since they have moved to Winchester Gardens. It’s wonderful that a community such as this can provide these types of opportunities.”
During the exhibition, the artists will mingle with guests while enjoying complimentary cocktails. Tours of the 37-acre community will also be available.
The art studio at Winchester, while only one of many activities and amenities, is among the most popular. Geralyn Robinson of Geralyn’s Art Studio in Maplewood leads the seniors in exploring and rediscovering their artistic aptitude.
“Keeping the mind activity engaged with learning is extremely beneficial,” said Halperin. “We find residents are redefining aging with their artistic pursuits. Living in a community where they can be with others who share similar interests is particularly satisfying. When coupled with the freedom from maintenance and household responsibilities, residents have more quality time to pursue their interests.”
