STC and ArtWeek MA (April 27-May 6)
May 1 - ART FOR/IS ART - A special collaboration for ArtWeekMA 1-3 pm in the Pushkin Gallery at Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center
Art For/Is Life is a celebration of the role of art in the lives of seniors, whether as life-long participants or for those exploring their connection to art.
Senior members of the Deerfield Valley Art Association will display in a special exhibition during ArtWeek at the Pushkin Gallery of Hawks & Reed. On May 1, seniors from the surrounding towns and Greenfield are invited to participate in this special event. Each participant will work with one of the volunteer elder artists to discover a way to represent through art a particular event or memory in his or her life - perhaps a childhood memory, a first job, or a visit to a special friend. The story will be recorded by a volunteer scribe and later re-told alongside the artwork just created.
Later, with permission of the participants, these artworks and the stories they reference will be displayed during Silverthorne's production of The Road to Mecca this June. We are grateful for our partners for this special event: Deerfield Valley Art Association, Hawks & Reed Performing Arts Center, Greenfield Council on Aging, Gill-Montague Council on Aging, Northfield Council on Aging, Bernardston Council on Aging, and the Greenfield, Montague and Deerfield Cultural Councils
- "This program is supported in part by grants from the Montague & Deerfield Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by
the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency."
