Calling All Connecticut Artists Age 70+

“The Art Experience” Showcases the Talents of senior Connecticut Artists.

Here’s another upcoming senior art show to add to our list and, if you live in Connecticut, I do hope you will enter. I love that Pomperaug Woods is setting the bar at age 70, as we have here in St. Louis for our series of Maturity and Its Muse art exhibitions. The wealth of talent and life experience these artists bring to their work is beyond imagination. I just want to hug each and everyone of them.

The Connecticut Senior Juried Art Show, “The Art Experience” at Pomperaug Woods, Southbury’s only not-for-profit retirement community, invites senior artists to participate in the seventh annual Connecticut Senior Juried Art Show, September 27-28. Entry forms with a photo of original artwork are due by June 27, 2014. The highly anticipated event showcases the work of talented Connecticut artists who are 70+ years of age. The show, themed “The Art of Experience” will include paintings, drawings, sculptures and photography – all created after the artists’ 70th birthday.

The Connecticut Senior Juried Art Show, produced by and hosted at Pomperaug Woods, is the first and only art show of its type in Connecticut. “We invite all of Connecticut’s senior artists to participate in our juried art show,” says Lisa Huebenthal, Program Director for Pomperaug Woods. “We promote cultural awareness for seniors through concerts and art exhibits at Pomperaug Woods, which we believe is important to maintaining an active and purposeful life.”

To celebrate the art show’s seventh anniversary, first-place winners in each of the four categories will receive cash prizes. There will also be a $250 cash prize and a crystal trophy in the shape of an artist’s palette awarded to the winner of the “Tommie Davis Award.” The Tommie Davis Award is presented to a Connecticut artist who demonstrates feelings of beauty and life in their artwork. Tommie Davis was a multi talented artist who not only was an award-winning photographer, but a gifted painter and sculptress. Tommie was a resident at Pomperaug Woods for many years and was very involved in the Annual Connecticut Senior Juried Art Show. Pomperaug Woods, as the host of this annual juried show, is able to present the award in Tommie’s memory because of her generous donation, earmarked for the arts, to the Founder’s Fund at Pomperaug Woods.

Pomperaug Woods, located in Southbury, CT, is a not for profit retirement community.
