Congratulations to all of the exhibiting artists in the Later Impressions 2012 exhibit, especially the award winners. Here is the list of the winning artwork along with comments by the jurors.
The jury included Judy Langston, Professor and Chairman of the Graphics Department, Oakton Community College; Jesse Howard, Art Educator, Oak Park Art League; and Jeanne Long, Associate Director of Special Exhibitions, School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The exhibit team included co-curators Kathi Beste, Sandra Holubow and William Whiteside. Thanks to their efforts and hard work, the exhibit is up and looks fantastic. Please stop at Renaissance Court Gallery in the Chicago Cultural Center before November 25 to see it.
On November 3 SAN will be conducting a fund raising event at the Stage 773 Theater, 1225 W. Belmont. We have reserved tickets for the matinee performance of the new production of Rock 'N Roll AD. This is an exclusive production of the Time Of Your Life Players. This theatrical group, like SAN, is exclusively for older adult actors and musicians.
The original one act musical, which takes the audience on a wild ride as the hero, Roy, gets his band back together for one last tour, and then is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. Roy's unbreakable spirit, sense of humor, and irreverent attitude allow him to continue the tour and learn how to live with the disease.
We hope that all SAN members, friends and family will support this effort. All proceeds will go the Grace Lai Memorial Fund, which helps to support the annual Members Show. Tickets will be available by contacting Annette.

SAN will sponsor a special photography exhibit at the Emily Oaks Nature Center in Skokie. This exhibit will be open to all photographers over 50. The focus on the exhibit will be on nature photos. This exhibit will be curated by Larry Chait and Beverly Nash. More information will be forth coming on the exhibit, but in the meantime, all you shutter bugs should get out their and start snapping.
SAN's other exhibit is the Annual Members Show. Any SAN member can enter the artwork of their choice, which they created within the last 5 years of the show. This show is generally held in the Spring and approximately 60-75 members enter. The show awards a $200 Grace Lai "Best of Show" award, and several other prizes. This show is free to all members. This exhibit has been held in a variety of locations, including the Palette and Chisel, Beverly Arts Center, North Shore Senior Center, the Elmhurst Museum, the South Shore Cultural Center and the Glessner House Museum. Details and the Prospectus for the Members Show will be available about 2 months before the exhibit opens. Look for information in February to be posted on the website.
At mid-year SAN hosts an information seminar to keep the membership informed about topic of interest to artists. In the past we tackled how to get artwork on-line, how to photograph and frame your artwork, art opportunities such as the "Pop-Up" Galleries, the Chicago Artists Resource website, and public art initiatives. We also feature artists who share their work or demonstrate innovative art techniques, as well as save time for SAN members to network. The program is usually held in late June or early July at Renaissance Court in the Chicago Cultural Center and is cosponsored by the Chicago Department of Family & Support Services – Senior Services.
The Grace Lai Memorial Fund was established in 2010 after the passing of one of SAN's founding members, Grace Lai. Grace was a well know on site artists in the Chicago area. She was a SAN board member and strong supporter of the arts in the Chicago area. The Grace Lai Memorial Fund supports the SAN Annual Members Show. This exhibition offers each member an opportunity to exhibit one of their works and compete for show prizes. More importantly, this show allows the artists' works to be seen by a large audience. The exhibition demonstrates to the public that older artists are still creative and creating.
