The Alzheimers Association - North Central Texas Chapter celebrates five years of Memories in the Making, an art program for people with dementia that brings the joy of creative self-expression to residents to area dementia care communities. The enigmatic watercolor paintings by MIM artists communicate, in the subtle and nuanced language of art, a sense of self that transcends memory loss. The delightful images offer a window onto world beyond memory, words and rational thought.

Framed and matted paintings will be available for sale via online auction from January 16 through 24, allowing people to enjoy these unique works of art and raising money for Memories in the Making.  Bids start at $50 per painting. To bid, visit www.biddingforgood.com/Thanksforthememories . Calendars, note cards and small matted paintings will be for sale at the event. For more information, contact Lisa Buck at 817-336-4949.
