Janet Enfield: Wisdom of the Ages

April 2, 2010 - May 17, 2010

Opening Reception: Friday, April 2, 2010 at 7:00 pm

This portrait exhibition earnestly captures the spirit and unique perspective of Peace Country elders whom the artist has had the pleasure of interviewing and photographing. To honour the many character’s individual life stories, every oil painting reveals a senior’s favourite colour, animal, vegetable, and inspirational quote, as well as how many children he or she has. It was once said, “The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person.” Enfield’s intent is to help pass this wisdom along.
