Art students at the Clinchfield Senior Adult Center will have an opportunity to showcase their talents to the community beginning next week.
The Center will host the first “Art on Union” show beginning Thursday, March 17, with a reception at the facility at 6 p.m.
The show will present pieces of work from the advanced art class at the Center and will be on display inside the facility until June 30, according to Director Kamela Easlic.
“This is the first ever exhibit,” Easlic told The Erwin Record on Friday, March 4. “Students of Judy King’s advanced art class will have artwork on display inside the Center.”
King, an instructor for the Center, worked with senior citizens at the facility to help channel their artistic side with Easlic explaining “several” of the students starting off as beginners.
“We’re just showcasing their work to show the art of painting,” she added. “We’re hoping to increase the exposure of the Center and the class to show the different activities we have available.”
Art on Union is the start of a three-month cycle of art exhibits that will be showcased inside the Center, according to Easlic.
The Center will also have a donation box for those who wish to donate to art-related programs offered at the facility.
