“What happens to the passion, vision, and creative drive of visual artists as they age?” The answers to this question are as varied and deep as the work of the 70+ artists, over the age of 60, who are represented in “Coming of Age.”
This is an invitational show that features men and women who are alive in their work, vital in their practice, and communicating through their creativity. Although age is the unifying factor in this exhibition, which celebrates a wide array of mediums and subject matter—the art itself is not about aging. What ties the show to the subject is the words that hang next to the work: all the creators have written about their experiences as artists “of a certain age.” Some are struggling, some thriving. Some are doing both.
Viewers walking through this exhibition will notice that the walls are bursting with vibrant work by a host of dedicated and brilliantly talented artists. Their age is incidental to their work, and that is the point. Because when you read the words that accompany their work, you’ll discover that they have much to say on the subject of aging and making art.
