While art is ageless, artists can be as well! Our talented, passionate artist community produces works that inspire and uplift. Creating with paint, cameras, stained glass, pastels, and mixed media, our resident artists take inspiration from the surrounding beauty of our wonderful 100-acre campus.
Many artists are self-taught, while others are mentored by talented fellow residents in our sunny art studio. Some residents are also instructed by professionals, including classes at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).
Teachers and students alike are finding fulfillment through art—some discovering their creative side for the first time later in life, and others reconnecting with artistic talents now that they have time to devote.
Just like their younger contemporaries, the works of these seasoned artists are showcased in gallery shows and exhibits, with many of their pieces in private and corporate collections. Each year, their works are also featured to the public in a showcase gallery during our popular Home & Garden Tour. And a rotating selection is on display year-round in two of our busiest Clubhouse corridors.
And their works are capturing the attention of a national fan base as well, winning several categories in the LeadingAge Virginia online senior art show, competing against pieces of art from 17 retirement communities across the state.
We salute our creative artisans! View some of their beautiful work in our Online Resident Art Gallery!
