NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Waveny’s residents were “Young at Art,” and recently displayed their colorful creations at the "Young at Art" Resident Art Show at The Village at Waveny.

“We’re not beginners,” said Gloria, one of Waveny’s resident artists who exhibited several pieces in the art show. “And, art is one thing we all have in common.”

The collection represented a body of work created over the past year by Waveny Care Center and Village residents and Adult Day participants in the art programs and classes led by art therapist and Waveny therapeutic recreation leader, Brenda Jacobsen.

“Art is a way we can express our thoughts instead of saying them out loud,” said resident artist, Hazel, who had several pieces featured. “It’s a different way of speaking. And, each one of us excels at something different.”

Pieces on display encompassed multiple mediums including watercolor, pastels and colored pencil. “It’s an honor,” said Waveny artist, Rose, with regard to showcasing her work for the community.

Celebrating 40 years of serving the community, Waveny LifeCare Network provides a comprehensive continuum of healthcare to serve the growing needs of older adults from all areas.

Waveny is a not-for-profit organization that offers independent living at The Inn, assisted living for people with Alzheimer’s and memory loss at The Village, and skilled nursing at Waveny Care Center. It also includes Waveny Home Healthcare, Waveny at Home, the Brown Geriatric Evaluation Clinic, Geriatric Care Management, an Adult Day Program available on weekdays with flexible hours, inpatient and outpatient Rehabilitation Services, and respite programs at The Village and Care Center.
