HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- Hastings' Andrus on Hudson is set to host the 10th annual "Matters of the HeART" art exhibition.
"Matters of the HeART" has grown from a 38-artist exhibit at Andrus on Hudson to a three-site, large exhibit, featuring more than 130 artists, according to a press release. The event was originally co-sponsored by the Helen Andrus Benedict Foundation and the Center for Creative Aging. Participants in the show include professionally trained artists as well as self-taught amateurs, according to the release.
The opening reception for the exhibit takes place from 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, May 14, at Andrus on Hudson. The show moved to the location from Greenburgh Town Hall on Wednesday, May 7. The spring art show is sponsored by Andrus on Hudson, Helen Andrus Benedict Foundation, Fordham University’s Harrison Campus and the Greenburgh Arts and Culture Committee.
"'Matters of the HeART' supports creative aging through the arts," representatives said in the release. "The artwork on display, including photographs, drawings, paintings, sculpture and collages, has all been made by artists who also happen to be senior citizens. This exhibit allows the artists to explore their creativity and reconnect with the artistic community and appreciative viewers."
Andrus on Hudson residents displaying artwork include Sheila Moore, Harriet Katz, John Kollar and Eugenia Filipowski and recreation intern Renay Peckoo.
"A special addition to the 10th anniversary exhibit is a series of handmade books on cultural heritage created by Andrus on Hudson residents," representatives said in the release.
The exhibit will remain on display through May 27, when it will move to Fordham University’s Harrison campus.
