Aging, Art and the Modern Elder opens at the 1401 Gallery
The show will run until October 24 and the gallery is open every weekend, Fridays 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., Saturdays 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sundays 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Entry is free although Cranbrook Arts welcomes donations towards their exterior renovation fund.
This project is from 16 artists belonging to North Okanagan Federation of Canadian Artists. All the artists are seniors and through their art they wish to educate the general community about aging, elderhood and ageism.
This project aims to promote a reconceptualization of aging and highlight the opportunities inherent in the new longevity. These artists hope to help change society’s attitude toward aging and mortality from one of disease or condition to be dreaded to one of challenges, opportunities and joys.
Each artist is interviewed in an accompanying video which will also be running in the gallery.
If you have not yet visited the new 1401 Gallery, we invite you to do so.
