Exhibit: “Art & Soul,” new works by Cottonwood Inc. retirees


For more than a decade Cottonwood, Inc. has shared a strong and rewarding partnership with the Lawrence Arts Center. Over the years students from Cottonwood have taken life-enriching classes in block print, silkscreen, ceramics, and creative movement. Each fall, Cottonwood retirees choose their favorite pieces of art which are featured and made available for purchase during an annual art show.

This year's show is titled Art & Soul. Many of the pieces were created under the tutelage of screenprinting instructor Christa Dalien. Working closely with her students, Christa shared techniques and print processes, while encouraging students to have fun and develop a sense of their artistic freedom. The opportunity to experience creative expression within the community and to work with professional artists at the Lawrence Arts Center is rewarding to Cottonwood's retirees, and is an important part of their retirement experience.
