Seniors’ Art Exhibition celebrates 30 years
Popular over 50’s art exhibition Grandma Moses is celebrating its 30th anniversary, opening with a presentation to the prize winners at 10.30am on Tuesday 18 September at the Gosford 50+ Leisure and Learning Centre.
Named after an American artist who didn’t take up painting until she was in her 70’s, Grandma Moses is sponsored by Gosford City Council and has grown to become one of the best loved events on our City’s cultural calendar.
Council’s Coordinator 50+ Leisure and Learning Centres’ Rhondda Gibson said the longevity of the competition is a testament to the talent and skill of our local senior artists.
“Grandma Moses provides an opportunity for the over 50’s to express themselves artistically and encourages novice artists who have taken up painting in the past twelve months to have their work displayed.
“Every year we are astounded by the breadth and calibre of artworks entered and we are proud to be able to offer this opportunity to showcase the talent of our senior artistic community.
“We are encouraging all community members to come along and celebrate our 30th anniversary with us in support of these amazing local artists,” said Ms. Gibson.
The exhibition opens with a presentation to the prize winners at 10.30am on Tuesday 18 September and closes at 4pm on Thursday 20 September 2012. Entry is a gold coin donation.
Gosford 50+ Leisure and Learning Centre is located at 217 Albany Street North, Gosford.
