GEORGETOWN, P.E.I. —
The artwork of seniors college students and instructors will be showcased at The Kings Playhouse Theatre in Georgetown, from Saturday, Aug. 22, to Saturday, Sept. 19.
This is the eighth year for this group show, with some old favourites exhibiting and lots of new artists as well. The show is usually held at The Guild in Charlottetown in the spring but had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19 strain) pandemic. The Playhouse graciously offered to take on the show.
Participants say they are at “a time in their lives” when work and family commitments are reduced, and they are thrilled to have the time to put into making art. The show will feature works from all the art classes, including watercolour, acrylic, pastel, drawings and multimedia.
Seniors college is open to anyone over 50. It provides an opportunity to learn something new in a wide variety of topics. The camaraderie among the students adds a lot to the enjoyment, participants say.
Fall classes are cancelled for 2020, but watch for a decision about the winter classes in 2021. A full list of seniors college courses, schedules and descriptions is available at www.seniorscollege.ca.
The Playhouse is located at 65 Grafton St., Georgetown. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m daily. COVID-19 regulations will be in effect.
