The Glebe Centre’s art show and sale is back!

By Ellen Schowalter

The art program at The Glebe Centre cordially invites you to its first show and sale in two years!

In 2004, Patricia Doyle, noted local artist and program facilitator for art at The Glebe Centre, was asked to set up an art program for the residents. The result has been extremely encouraging, exciting and therapeutic. People who have never painted before and insist they are not artists find a new language to communicate and express their inner feelings and the creative force which is innate in every person.

Benefits include a chance for accomplishment when other abilities may have diminished or been lost, enhanced self-esteem, ability to focus and a social context to relate to others. There is no right or wrong nor any expectations. All interested residents are invited to participate.

The show and sale will take place at Abbotsford House, 950 Bank Street across from Lansdowne Park, on Saturday, September 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All proceeds will benefit resident programming.

Admission is free, and donations are gratefully accepted. Everyone is welcome. Masks will be provided to all attendees.

Ellen Schowalter is a Glebe artist and long-time volunteer with The Glebe Centre art program.
