Current Exhibit

UA OLLI Program's “It’s Never Too Late to Start"

Exhibit Dates: July 7-August 18, 2017 
Reception: July 7 from 5-8 p.m. during First Friday
Background: OLLI is a program that offers noncredit classes without grades or assignments to adults older than age 50.

Karen Jacobs, an OLLI student whose work will be displayed in the exhibit, said she enjoys taking the classes because it gives her the opportunity to explore new interests and develop new hobbies.

“Since I am now retired, I think it is important to continue to learn, especially as we age,” Jacobs said. “Ultimately, OLLI provides opportunities for ongoing involvement, which is very important in developing a daily routine which in turn provides purpose and fulfillment in your life.”

Director of the gallery Karen Kennedy said the exhibit will include works of photography, printmaking, painting, ceramics, wood working, stained glass, and jewelry.


The Gallery is open weekdays from 9 am - 5 pm & the First Friday of every month Noon to 8 pm.
