Residents created an impromptu art gallery at their residence to display a wide variety of works they created.

Arts and crafts included works in a variety of mediums including watercolor paintings, decorative wreaths, acrylic paintings, completed jigsaw puzzles, photography, handmade dolls and quilts, to name only a few.

Some of the pieces will be entered in competition at this year’s Oswego County Fair.

“Older Americans Month is always a special time of year at St. Luke, and an opportunity for us to honor our greatest treasures, seniors in our community,” said Donna Rose, Director of the St. Luke Activities Department. “The art gallery was a great way to complete our month of special outings and activities, while recognizing our resident artists; it shows that creativity has no limits.”
