Santa Rosa, CA – July 6, 2018 – A delightful mix of original
art by Sonoma County residents age 60+ will be on display at the 2018 Senior
Art Show from July 17-Septermber 6 at Finley Community Center, 2060 W.
College Ave., Santa Rosa. The show highlights the creative talents and skills
of older adults through their paintings, glass work, photography, sculpture,
fiber pieces and wood carvings. Visit free Monday – Fridays, 8 a.m.– 6 p.m.,
and Saturdays, 9–11 a.m.
Reception is Thurs., July 19, 1-4 p.m., at the Finley Center. Artists will
demonstrate their skills as guests enjoy light refreshments and music.
This year’s featured
artist is Guerneville resident Georgianna Kepler (see photo), whose
work has been part of the Senior Art Show for 10 years. The 78-year-old says
her paintings, with their vibrant colors, depict “an underlying harmony in a
seemingly chaotic world.” Her work is currently exhibited at Cafe Meuse Wine
Lounge in San Francisco, Mi Casita Mexican Restaurant in Guerneville, and
annually by the Sonoma County Human Services Department Adult and Aging
Division and the City of Santa Rosa, the show is open to any local older
artist, though most are from art classes at senior centers. The Adult and Aging
Division provides protective and supportive social services for older adults
and people with disabilities to help them live independently, with dignity and
a positive quality of life.
