Park West Gallery Welcomes American House Senior Living Community
Park West Gallery recently hosted a day of art enrichment for the residents of American House Senior Living Community. Michigan-based contemporary artist Tim Yanke generously volunteered his time to visit with the guests and inspire them through a presentation of his art.
The seniors were with fascinated by Yanke’s vibrant, abstract paintings and the unique language of symbolism so prevalent throughout his work. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed learning about the artist’s creative process, as well as sharing their thoughts on topics such as the influence of technology on contemporary art.
“THANK YOU all for another wonderful event. All of our residents were truly enriched by the experience and I know will talk about it for weeks and months to come,” said American House Director, Betsy Pilon.
“Our thanks to Tim Yanke for his participation as well as his kindness to our residents and his willingness to share his passion with us. Abstract art really opens the residents up and the questions, comments and reactions to the artwork shows just how important this type of program is for our seniors. You truly are doing a wonderful thing by opening up Park West Gallery to us and we very much appreciate it.”
This was the second event of its kind between Park West Gallery and American House; earlier this year, residents enjoyed an artist lecture featuring Dominic Pangborn.
