Seniors Art Exhibit in Leduc

The Telford House Seniors Art Club is a dynamic group that meets each Wednesday at Telford House on 46 Street.

SENIOR SKILL - Some lovely art pieces by local seniors

During the month of June the Elsie Johns Art Wall, located at the back of the Leduc Public Library, is displaying an exhibit of oil and acrylic paintings sure to delight art lovers of all ages.

The Telford House Seniors Art Club is a dynamic group that meets each Wednesday at Telford House on 46 Street, near Telford Lake, to paint, learn and visit with kindred spirit artists, many of whom have become lifelong friends. Created some 40 years ago, the club initially was hosted in the local high school before Telford House was built, and had an exhibit for a few years in the Civic Centre’s atrium, and in the Old Library.

Marjorie Campbell and Phyllis McGhan are two lively, “mature” artists and Leduc residents: Mrs. Campbell became a member of this art club 37 years ago. Mrs. McGhan was involved in the Red Deer Arts community for many years, being an arts supporter and a judge, and only tried painting 19 years ago: she never stopped, and her painting show an inspired talent.

They both shared that many paintings by local artists have been purchased by local institutions. Some senior artists have donated art pieces to see them auctioned off in support of non-profit causes dear to their heart.

Bring the kids, friends and grand-parents to view this lovely and fun art exhibit: your visit to the comfy Leduc Public Library will be enhanced by a stroll to the Elsie Johns Art Wall. All the month of June, we can all enjoy the surprising and delightful talent of our local seniors. You might even be tempted to contact the artist and buy one of these lovely pieces!
