Lindsay Seniors Association artists featured at City Hall

By Lindsay Advocate

The work of a group of artists from the Lindsay Seniors Association will be displayed throughout May at City Hall. All are invited to visit City Hall at 26 Francis Street in Lindsay to enjoy various paintings from more than 20 artists.

As a group of artists ranging in age from 55 to 92, each has their own story. Some have been painting all their lives, some were graphic artists and many have only begun painting in their senior years. The Lindsay Seniors Association Art Group is a social painting group established more than 20 years ago that works on their own projects every Friday morning at the Armoury in Lindsay.

Their exhibition at City Hall includes more than 45 paintings in a variety of mediums.

“We are so proud to have the opportunity to display our artwork at City Hall,” said Ann Smith, a representative of the Art Group. “Not just for public viewing, but also for our Council members to enjoy and see what our seniors are producing with their precious time.”

Ann says that the Art Group is on the same page regarding their favourite part of being an artist in Kawartha Lakes. “Where else could we get the most beautiful scenery to paint so close to our homes?” Ann added.

In order to showcase the work of many Kawartha Lakes artists, the artwork at City Hall changes approximately every month. If you would like your work to be featured, please contact Christine Briggs, Executive Assistant to Mayor and Council at 705-324-9411 extension 1310.
