Resident art show allows residents of Simcoe Manor/Village an opportunity to shine

October 31, 2013   ·   0 Comments

The residents at Simcoe Manor in Beeton were given a day to show off their artistic creations on Saturday October 19th. The Program and Support Services Department organized the event with the purpose of giving the residents the opportunity to display their work in a gallery type setting and achieving the emotional benefits of such. Many of the residents continue to enjoy the creative programs that are offered in the home such as; Brush to Canvas, Knitting Bee & A Cup of Tea, Crafty Creations, Bead it, etc. The South Simcoe Arts Council graciously lent some display grids and offered to provide the residents with an art workshop. Aristotle said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” Pictured above: the work of Jean Bailey, Innisfil Wing resident at the Beeton Manor. Bailey previously enjoyed working with aluminum, pottery, knitting, and leather.
