Changes Gallery Show

June 19, 2021 Rumriver Art Center

Rumriver Art Center will be hosting a new art show titled Changes in its gallery (2665 4th Ave, Suite 103A). The show opening is Saturday, June 19, 2021 from 2pm-4pm. The gallery show will feature the artwork of teaching artist and mentor, Cheryl Barr and her mentee, Anita Cholewa. They participated in Rumriver Art Center’s 2020-2021 Emerging Artist Mentorship Program for Older Adults Ages 55+. The purpose of the artist mentorship program is to provide older adults who never had the opportunity to find their artistic voice during their youth a chance to explore and find it now. Applicants selected one medium they wanted to focus on during their mentorship experience, and they were paired with a local artist who is very skilled and experienced with their selected medium. The mentors and mentees met together multiple times a month at or outside the art center over a nine-month period. Mentors helped their mentee develop as an artist through assessing their strengths and weaknesses as well as through collaboration, the implementation of strategies, and evaluation along the way. Mentees worked with their mentors to set goals for themselves and for their work. This gallery show is a culminating event that showcases the artwork, growth, and accomplishments that took place during the mentorship program experience. Both Cheryl Barr (Mentor) and Anita Cholewa (Mentee) will be displaying their work in a shared gallery show.
