Agency on Aging of South Central Connecticut (AOASCC) The Art of Aging 2023 Announced
The Art of Aging is a celebration of creativity expressed by people over the age of 60 who have discovered the satisfaction of blending art and life. Some of our artists “discovered” their passion for creating art late in life, when, other responsibilities diminished and there was new-found time to pursue personal interests. Other artists have been creating art since childhood. Each has come to recognize the unique place art has in their lives.
Artist Registration: Artists 60 years and older are invited to submit their paintings or photography for display throughout the halls of the AOASCC building. Registration is required before artwork is dropped off at the office in April. Full details are found on our website - www.aoascc.org/artofaging.
Exhibition Dates: The exhibition opens with a reception on May 18, 2023 from 2:00-6:00 p.m. Artwork is on display throughout the month and at the closing reception on June 22, cash prizes will be awarded to the first and second place winner in each category. Winners will be selected by local art experts and People’s Choice prizes in each category will also be awarded based on votes cast by the public.
Why the Art of Aging: Aging may be a time when people are vulnerable and in in need of help and services to survive, but it is also a time when many older adults are contributing to the quality of life of the community through their creative contributions. Support the Agency on Aging when we provide services and celebrate with us when we recognize the contributions of older adults.
AOASCC is an independent non-profit organization providing assistance so individuals can continue living safely at home, support for those caring for their loved ones and opportunities for volunteer engagement. Our mission is to provide services and champion older adults and individuals with disabilities so that they remain independent and engaged in their communities.
