The Art of Experience 2018

Celebrate The Art of Experience at our 11th annual juried art show, which showcases inspiring work from 100+ Connecticut artists over age 70. This two-day exhibition features paintings, drawings, photography, and sculpture.

New this year, awards will be given to the following four pieces of artwork:

  • Most Expressive
  • Most Innovative
  • Abstract
  • Best Execution

In addition, the Tommie Davis Award will be presented to the artist who best demonstrates feelings of beauty and life in their artwork. The award-winning pieces will also go on exhibit at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury after the public exhibit at Pomperaug Woods on Saturday, September 22 and Sunday 23 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. 

“We’re excited to see the show continue to grow,” said Lisa Huebenthal, director of community life services at Pomperaug Woods. “We have four esteemed judges from the greater Connecticut area and we’re sure the new categories and awards will only add to the show’s appeal.”

Since its first year, The Art of Experience has doubled in size in terms of artwork entries and attendance at the public exhibit. Pomperaug Woods is proud to host the show and promote artwork among older adults. Studies have shown that engaging in the arts can help enhance quality of life for older adults and provide various health and wellness benefits.

“Our senior living community is dedicated to providing an uplifting environment, and the art show is just one example of that,” added Leigh Schultz, marketing director at Pomperaug Woods.

Meet and mingle with artists from across the state as well as Pomperaug Woods residents who are mastering the art of living.
