Art Exhibit through May 17 Highlights Creative Aging Program

The 18 older artists participating in my 10-day artist residency at the Jewish Federation of Harrisburg walked through the opening of their exhibit, Timeless Expressionz, last Wednesday.

The exhibit displays hundreds of pieces of intuitive art they created over the past five weeks and will be on display at the center through Wednesday, May 17.

During the residency the artists took on artistic challenges such as:
Drawing their breath
Test driving their materials
Drawing shadows
Drawing what they hear
Drumming what they see
Drawing like Matisse with a 6' bamboo stick
Creating abstract art with their name
Developing repetitive word art, and

The artist residency is an Arts in Education program of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Jump Street, and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging.
