Special Limited Exhibit at Lanai Art Gallery.

We are excited to share the original works of our own local seniors in the exhibit of “Kupuna Sunsets” at Lanai Art Gallery. Lanai Art Gallery is proud to partner with our seniors to display their work until Wednesday, July 26, 2023. Come any day the Gallery is open, 10 am to 3 pm. This exhibit has a limited schedule. Join us now to encourage our kupuna in their beautiful expressions of Lanai.
The Lanai Senior Center offers a creative activity each month to any senior who is 55 plus. Michele Weinhouse leads them in discovering their skills in retirement. This latest session was acrylics on canvas. Each artist painted their own sunset background and then composed pine trees into their landscape. The program and supplies are funded through a grant from the Manele Koele Charitable Foundation. Participating seniors were Juanita Bala, Gina Dugay, Michio Morimoto, Midori Oshima, Winnie Ramos, Marilyn Rivera and Natividad Whipple.
Michele has led them in several creations like Easter rabbits from socks and making Christmas ornaments. Any 55 plus senior can participate in the monthly activity, 9:30 am to 11 am, at no cost. This activity helps to build and maintain motor skills, creativity, help with socialization and maintain cognitive development. Please check with the Senior Center for the dates.
