13th Annual Arts Alive Exhibit and FestivalClick to RSVP
Start DateOctober 3, 2009
Celebrating & recognizing the artistic talents of older adults in the Greenville community is the focus of Senior Action?s 13th Annual Arts Alive Art Exhibition & Festival to be held Saturday, October 3rd in Downtown Greenville?s McPherson Park. Arts Alive was established in 1996 by Senior Action to promote and bring awareness to the artistic skills and talents of older adults. Arts Alive is also meant to encourage other aspiring senior artists to ?pick up a paint brush? or discover an alternative art medium and begin creating works of art.
Artists are invited to submit original works of art in the follow categories: painting, watercolor, pottery, sculpture, photography, stained glass, and other three-dimensional design. Artists must be over the age of 55 to exhibit in this event.
An additional, but important, aspect of Arts Alive is that funds raised from this festival serve to support programs for seniors at Senior Action ? including the Open Studio art program at the Sears Shelter in McPherson Park. Senior Action strives to meet the needs of the older population of Greenville County and the Arts Alive event and art programming assist Senior Action in meeting these needs.
Schedule for Senior Action?s 13th Annual Arts Alive Art Exhibition & Festival is as follows:
? Saturday, October 3rd 10 a.m. ? 4 p.m. ? Arts Alive Festival in downtown Greenville?s McPherson Park
