What's Up In The Village

Celebrating our village artists

Enjoy a vivid evening of art and celebration of your fellow Village neighbors of today and yesterday on Saturday, February 17.

“An Exhibition Honoring Village Residents Through Portraiture” is from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Clubhouse 2.

Talented Village artists will showcase their paintings, drawings and photography in the picturesque Sequoia Ballroom. Meet the artists and learn about each subject while savoring live music and complimentary appetizers, wine and champagne. 

The centerpiece of this enchanting event is the work of Village artist Jim Gibson who started crafting his “Old Guys Series” in the fall of 2013. Since then, his exhibition has expanded to include “Old Gals” of the Village as well as amazing works from fellow artists he has painted alongside with in the Clubhouse 4 Art Studio for more than 13 years.

This collective retrospective exhibit of 11 paintings honors the life and character of each subject. Although some of his subjects are no longer with us, many will be on hand to pose with their portraits and revel in living in the Village.
