Event Description:

“Creativity for Vibrant Aging: Lessons from the Geezer Gallery” Presentation on September 13, 2016, from 3 to 5 pm, at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita

Imagine a community that celebrates master level senior artists, plus provides arts programs that give voice to community members of all generations. The Hoffman Center for the Arts serves as a key player in making this three-village area such a creative, vibrant community.

On September 13, 2016, The Art of Aging series at the Hoffman Center welcomes a presentation from Amy Henderson, founder of Portland's Geezer Gallery. The Geezer Gallery represents older artists, and daily proves the value of creative engagement through dynamic group programs, open studios and collaboration with other arts groups. Amy will inspire with stories of the partnerships, advocacy, research and programs of this unique organization, a lively incubator of aging creativity in Portland for the past seven years.

Amy will be joined by kinetic sculptor and Geezer Gallery President Candyce Scott. Candyce and Amy will share research findings as well as personal stories that illustrate finding purpose and transformation through creativity in later life.  

The session will run from 3 to 5pm. Suggested donation is $5.

The Art of Aging/Art of Dying Series is a program of the Hoffman Center for the Arts and will be held at the Hoffman (across from Manzanita Library at 594 Laneda Avenue.) Further information is available at online or contact Tela Skinner at
