Through our Traveling Exhibits Program, we are proud to share the extraordinary talents of AWE artists with the wider community as our Artists are featured in Exhibits at a wide variety of venues across the Bay Area throughout the year.
The Art With Elders Traveling Exhibits Program spotlights the creativity and vitality of our elder artists, and provides them with a presence, and a pathway to staying active and visible, in the community. Mobility can be an issue as we age, but it does not need to keep us from engaging fully, we can use the power of art, creativity, and community to enrich the journey of aging.
Through AWE’s Traveling Exhibits Program, artists stay connected to and visible in the community. AWE Program Artists create art in the classroom all year round, and are invited to enter work for our Annual Exhibit. Each year, 100 representative artworks are chosen from about 400 entrants to be featured in our Annual Exhibit. Each artwork is displayed with a photo and biography of the artist. After the opening event for the Annual Show, the works go out into the community to be exhibited in a variety of venues and online presentations throughout the year. For many, this sharing of art and community increases positive self-esteem and can have transformational emotional effects.
Works donated to AWE by the artists are for sale, proceeds directly support our ongoing programming. If you are interested in purchasing art please contact us at Info@artwithelders.org.
