The Loading Dock Gallery presents ARTFUL AGE: “Youth has no Age”
Sumptuous color, provocative line, and interesting texture soothe your soul and tickle your inner child. Picasso was right: "Youth has no age.” The Loading Dock Gallery’s July Show, Artful Age proves the saying true.
Curators Linda B. Dunn and Pamela Wamala have worked in parallel for close to a decade, leading art classes for senior centers, continuing care residences, and rehab facilities. In Artful Age, their students’ work shines with joy. "Art reawakens old interests and sparks new ones,” notes Dunn. "It activates time. It gives the moment meaning.”
Some Artful Age artists have painted for a lifetime. Others discovered art as seniors. Their joy of exploration shines in Artful Age. In elder classes, art offers a place of autonomy and discovery. As a student observed: "We came not knowing how to draw a straight line. Now we can paint, and we know that circles are more fun." Come, see, and feel this delightful exhibit from a group of unexpected artists. Artful Age: “Youth has no age”.
