Over 60s Presents: Arts Fest Series 2023-24

Twelve adults stand before a whiteboard in the Alliance Room.
Participants in the Over 60s Poetry Bash – November 19, 2023

The Over 60s have taken the initiative to showcase our many FUUSN artists. A different art form will be represented during coffee hour on one Sunday each month with artists displaying their general art medium together.   ALL artist creators, novices and experts who putter, play, experiment, explore, publish and/or market are urged to participate and are happily invited to join their art medium group in enjoying each others works and creating together a display in the Parish Hall or Alliance Room on the Sunday for the art medium designated for that month.  We will have the opportunity to savor different art works and talk with and learn about our artists and their creations.

This initiative is lead by our creative leaders, Barbara Deck and Kit Ryan with support from Karen Edwards, Anne Watson Born and other organizers who volunteer each month during the year!
