Northern Clay Center presented an exhibition featuring clay work created in our fall and winter partnerships with 55+ers at Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, Episcopal Homes, Ebenezer Ridges, Ebenezer Park Apartments and the Martin Luther Campus. In addition to clay objects made by residents and clients, this exhibition included work by program directors and recreation therapists, as well as NCC teaching artists Kevin Caufield, Ann Fendorf, Marian Lucas, Angie Renee Lund, and Lucy Yogerst, all of whom led clay instruction with these partners. This exhibition was made possible by NCC's Wallace Foundation Excellence Award Grant.
This exhibition was presented in conjunction with the 2010 Society for Arts in Healthcare's (SAH) 21st Annual International Conference: Partners for Health, which will take place April 28 - May 1 in Minneapolis. The conference provided opportunities for healthcare professionals and artists alike to participate in hands-on workshops, explore model programs, and learn about best practices and cutting-edge research in the arts in healthcare field. This conference was part of a greater community wide celebration of arts in healthcare throughout the month of April, which included gallery exhibitions, workshops and open houses.
