GALLERY  & DISPLAY CASE EXHIBIT

 

"KINGSTON COUNCIL ON AGING OIL PAINTING CLASS "

     

This November, the Kingston Public Library will exhibit work by the students of A. Violet Berry in their Wednesday morning oil painting workshops. The students featured in this exhibit are Susan Lee Traft, Bill Mello, Rita Bento, Maralyn "Gig" Paris, Armando Enriquez, Diane Wilson, Gail Burgess, Sue Mrosk, Leanne Berry, Gladys McGarry, Ruth Littman and Richard Stevens. Their exhibit includes a variety of animals, landscapes and portraits.

All of the students are senior citizens, most from Kingston. Some have painted before, but for many this class has been their introduction to painting.

For the past 14 years, Mrs. Berry, for many years an art teacher in the Kingston school system, has been teaching oil painting through the Council On Aging. Former COA Director Muriel Boyce made the original suggestion to Mrs. Berry and her late husband Patrick, and worked with them to plan and promote the class to seniors, and it has proven very popular; most of the students from the first class have continued on through seversl years. Classes are held in spring and fall at the Senior Center on Wednesday mornings.
