Art Out Loud (Sunday, Apr 14, 2019 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

Atlanta — Atlanta’s Jewish Tower in conjunction with the Aviv Older Adult Services division of Jewish Family and Career Services (JF&CS) will host its annual spring art show, called Art Out Loud, on Sunday, April 14, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The show will feature resident artists as they proudly present their artworks, including paintings, pastels, chalks and collage. Many beautiful and meaningful artworks will be for sale, with all profits going directly to the artist.

Georgia O’Keefe, Henri Matisse and Frida Kahlo all created art beyond their ability to see and move with ease. While artists grow from young to old over a lifetime, the ability art has to transport, transform and heal is timeless. JF&CS and the Jewish Tower have created a space for residents to break from their aches and pains to express themselves and experiment with new materials. Art group members between the ages of 50 and 100 years old meet weekly to socialize, and create works that stretch and move them.

Active participation in the arts and learning promotes physical health; enhances a sense of well-being among older adults; improves the quality of life for those who are ill; and reduces risk factors that lead to the need for long-term care. With this in mind, the Open Studio Art Group was created in 1995 and continues to run strong today. Currently, the group is facilitated by Ling Olaes, art and yoga therapist at JF&CS; Keryn Benasuly, AVIV clinician at JF&CS; and Elizabeth Klunk, clinical services intern at JF&CS.

Don’t miss this special chance to support your elders, encourage intergenerational learning, and receive the gift of both imagination and inspiration! In addition to being able to meet and support the artists, you are invited to enjoy tasty snacks and participate in an art raffle at the event.

Families are welcome!
