The Art Group

" Daffodils" Water Color by Elnor Buck

Meet Elnor Buck the Artist:
"I am an active member of the Friday Morning Art Group at the Senior Center in Charlottesville. Virginia. I have been painting for thirteen years. My favorite subjects to paint are flowers and plants".

Seniors interested in drawing and painting gather each Monday afternoon and Friday morning at the Senior Center in the Arts and Crafts Room on the second floor. A still life setup is provided for subject matter and occasionally a model is engaged for portrait and figure studies. No formal instruction is provided, but members share their experience and knowledge with one another freely.  Helpful critiques of work are given upon request.

The Group started in the early 90’s and counts more than 20 members this year. We come from different walks of life and have a variety of interests, but the passion we have for beauty and color brings us together, and the goal of a community of artists helps strengthen our commitment to one another. We have bloomed into a cheerful group of friends.

The Group periodically exhibits its works in the Robey Room Gallery downstairs. Our art works are also on display in the hallway outside the Arts and Crafts Room.

The Art Group meets on Monday afternoon from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and Friday morning from 9:00 to noon. Meetings are in the Arts and Crafts Room opposite the elevator on the second floor. The Group welcomes all Senior Center members to visit or join us. If interested please contact Marion Hansen, Fine Art Group Chairperson, at (434) 974-5662.
