Good News This Week

Good News This Week

It was an eventful week at our communities; we started off with celebrating Father's Day with so many fun and thoughtful gifts and special events. To stay fit physically and mentally, one community set up a walking trivia event and we started a new Fitness Tip of the Month series with this month's exercise helping to improve balance. We also saw how our communities are staying connected to their faith during the pandemic and how local organizations are helping our residents by sending them letters. Read about all of these wonderful events and more below. 

 

Westminster Retirement Communities Foundation Annual Resident Art Show Judging at Westminster Point Pleasant

June 24, 2020

Westminster Virtual Art Show

Bradenton-area art experts met on Friday, June 19, to judge submissions for the 26th Annual Westminster Retirement Communities Foundation Resident Art Show, to be held virtually this year.


Westminster Point Pleasant, located in Bradenton, had been the planned site for the annual show, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, no physical art traveled to Bradenton for an in-person show or judging session. Instead, judges Jerome Chesley, Mary Lou Ringers, and Elaine Charney all safely converged on Bradenton Downtown Springhill Suites to judge the submitted material virtually.


“This body of work was very sophisticated,” Charney said, while noting that the fabric art pieces, for example, surprised her with their originality. The volume of artwork Westminster residents submitted also surprised Charney.


Chesley said that as an art advocate in the Bradenton-Sarasota area, he’s thrilled to see Westminster’s efforts to promote art through its annual show.


“Art is such an important part of life,” Chesley said. “It’s a tribute to Westminster to prioritize and appreciate what art can do for people.”


Ringers complimented the Westminster team for presenting the art as beautifully as possible, given the challenging circumstances, and said it was difficult to choose a limited number of winners from so many great pieces of work. 


“Every artist who took the time to create and enter their work is to be congratulated,” Ringers said. “As a lifelong art teacher, it is a joy to see so much ongoing creativity.” 


“Artists need never be bored. The act of creating gives us not only a much needed form of expression, but so much joy,” said Ringers.


Charney added that no one should assume they don’t have the capacity for artistic expression, since many start creating later in life, “Many have no idea that they have the talent.”


Congratulations to all of the residents who submitted a piece to the 26th Annual Westminster Retirement Communities Foundation Resident Art Show!
