Last June a group of residents got together and created a catalog of all the art that hangs on the walls of Laurelmead. Five floors and over 462 framed pieces! Going forward, every two months there has been a new art show, each one curated by a Laurelmead resident. In October, Sam Bender, a retired veterinarian, found eight paintings with cats, dogs, horses, and oxen. Most recently, Janet Zurier opted to show her favorite female artists. The art is then relocated from its usual hallway hang-out, and displayed for two months in the “Ping Pong Gallery”. These displays give residents the opportunity to see artwork that they walk past every day with a “new eye” as well as learn from the informative text next to each painting. Over 50 people attended the last opening - was it the wine, cheese, nibbles, friends or art?
