“Aging Gracefully” Group Artist Interpretation Exhibit

August 14 – September 29 “Aging Gracefully” a group artist interpretation exhibit will be on view at Woodruff’s Art Center in Mashpee Commons. There is a meet-the-artists reception of Wednesday, August 14th from 5:00 to 7:00pm with refreshments.

When Woodruff’s Art Center put out a “call to artists” to apply for participation in an exhibit titled “Aging Gracefully”, an array of artists and photographers responded enthusiastically with varied interpretations of how they viewed aging gracefully. The result was fifteen creative participants uniquely portraying the theme in oil, photography, watercolor, acrylic, collage, pastel, gouache, charcoal, fiber and encaustic wax.

One charcoal portrait “Great Aunt Val” expresses artist Sandra Hadley’s view that “aging gracefully” is about authenticity and acceptance, always being true to yourself, caring for yourself and celebrating yourself regardless of the years. In a series of acrylic paintings artist Candice Ronesi depicts the beauty of older homes, adorned with happy flowers and flags, aging gracefully under the fastidious care of their owners.

The exhibitors are Joe Fattori of E.Sandwich, Candice Ronesi of Forestdale, Gunjan Laborde of E.Falmouth, Betsy Payne Cook of Mashpee, Debbie Kurlansky Winer of Newton, Annette MacAdams of Sandwich, Sue Dahling Sullivan of Mashpee, Chris O’Dell Ferguson of Marstons Mills, Jan Waitz of West Newton, Sandra Hadley of Sandwich, Roger Bigg of UK, Amy Rice of N.Eastham, Cynthia Cruz of E.Falmouth, Helen Koehler of East Falmouth and Arthur Tsicoulias of Mashpee.
