While the myriad of new up-and-coming technology and gadgets that pop up everyday seem to increasingly widen the generation gap, the Multi-Generational Art Show is a unique opportunity for children and adults to develop meaningful connections through art.
“Our goal is to offer more opportunity for intergenerational activity,” Patti Davis, supervisor of the Community Center & Preschool/Youth, said. “That's the big push these days.”
Children, ages 5 to 15 years, are invited to enter any work of art created jointly with an adult, ages 50 and older. The entry fee is $4 per piece.
All entries will be accepted on July 10 at Community Center, 233 W. Main St., from 10am-6pm.
Acceptable media for art submissions include paint (watercolor, tempera, acrylic, oil), clay and wood. For more details, call 427-6467.
All entries must also include at least one photograph showing the two artists with the work in progress.
Submitted artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Community Center, weekdays July 14-July 17, 8am-4:30pm and 5:30-8pm.
Prizes will be awarded to all participants.
