We are surrounded by many resident artists here at The Fountains. The Expressions Calendar is an award-winning calendar that celebrates active aging and the arts. We were able to have many submissions and even a few winners! Arline Stern submitted a mosaic “Self Portrait” that will be featured on a portion of the front cover. Donna Davis, who leads our Artist of the Month community, submitted a clay bowl titled “The Cure.” Her piece was selected from entries nationwide to be included in the full-color wall calendar and will be featured during the month of September. Always interested in art and nature, Donna spent 33 years teaching children who were deaf and hearing impaired. After retiring, she volunteered and took classes in nature printing and pottery. Most of her creations are organic in style. This particular piece was inspired by a photo of cells under a microscope.
We are so very proud of the two ladies that will be featured in next years calendar. We were able to show our appreciation for these ladies at our last Town Hall meeting with making this announcement of the calendar winners and presenting flowers to them as well.
Complimentary copies of the Expressions 2018 Calendar are available while supplies last at The Fountains at Lake Pointe Woods.
