Even though somedays with the fluctuating weather, we aren’t sure if
Spring is on the way, it’s here according to the calendar and so are plans and
preparations for our annual Senior Citizens Art Show!
For those not familiar with our Art Show, this year marks 35 years for this fun
and popular event that we have the privilege of hosting and organizing each
year. It’s always a treat to see all of the amazing talent we have right here
in our local communities. I encourage you to see for yourself the beautiful art and composition pieces our seniors will have on display. They certainly enjoy sharing their talent for the enjoyment of others and we appreciate their participation in this special event.
Mark your calendars for May 22nd through May 26th (Monday through Friday) and May 30th through June 2nd (Tuesday through Friday). During this time, the artwork of many talented individuals age 55 and older who reside in our ten-county district and beyond will be on display at the Esther Allen Greer Museum on the campus of the University of Rio Grande in Rio Grande, Ohio. A special Tea to honor our artists will be held on Friday, June 2nd at the Greer Museum at 1:00 pm. Artwork will be on display during the dates mentioned from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm daily. Everyone is invited to attend.
We hope to see you at the 2017 AAA7 Senior Citizens Art Exhibit this May and June!
