Spotlight Gallery to Feature Local Seniors in Exhibition

Local art lovers will have an opportunity to view artwork created by area seniors at Richmond’s Spotlight Gallery in an exhibit hosted by the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities. The exhibit, titled “Continuing to Create! A Senior Group Art Exhibition,” will open with a reception from 6 - 8 p.m. on April 1 at the gallery, located at the department’s Pine Camp Arts and Community Center at 4901 Old Brook Rd.
Gallery visitors will be able to meet the artists at the reception and purchase artwork done in a wide array of media. “Senior citizens in our community are displaying a lifetime of experiences in their beautiful creations,” said Shaunn Casselle, a recreation instructor for the department and co-curator of the show.
The exhibit will be on display beginning April 1 through April 29. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
