Senior Art Show coming up in May

The time is here for our annual Area Agency on Aging District 7 (AAA7) Senior Citizens Art Show and Essay/Poetry Contest.

For those not familiar with our Art Show, this year marks 34 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 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 23 through May 27 (Monday through Friday) and May 31 through June 3 (Tuesday through Friday). During this time, the artwork of many talented individuals age 55 and older who reside in our ten-county district 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 3 at the Greer Museum at 1 p.m. Artwork will be on display May 23 through May 27 and May 31 through June 3 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. daily. Everyone is invited to attend.

In order to have a wonderful variety, we are looking for artwork or beautiful essays and poetry from those talented individuals who have a love for art or writing. Participants must be 55 years of age or older and complete an application form.

The form, which also includes additional eligibility requirements, is included on our website at www.aaa7.org, or you can request a hard copy mailed to you by calling our Agency toll-free at 1-800-582-7277 or e-mail info@aaa7.org. Artwork will be judged in a number of categories, and essay and poetry entries should be no more than 1,000 words in length.

In order to participate in the Art Show or Essay/Poetry Contest, items must be delivered to our Administrative Offices in Rio Grande by May 2, or please call us at 1-800-582-7277 for more information.
