AGELESS ART: The Oaknoll Collection

“Art heals the soul and frees the mind. Art tells a story that words cannot always express.  Art is ageless, timeless, and has no boundaries.”  Megan Bishop

Megan Bishop is an Iowa City artist who, at a young age, taught painting to her cancer-stricken grandfather.  She witnessed the way it comforted him and was then led to work with seniors in our community.  Megan will talk about her teachings at Oaknoll Retirement Community while highlighting the paintings of her students. The artists themselves will be on hand to tell us their stories and share their work.

2:00 PM Sunday, Sept. 18th
at Beadology 220 E. Washington
ADMISSION IS FREE
