“Memories in the Making,” an art showcase and evening of celebration is Thursday June 20 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the James Gray Gallery (Bergamot Station Art Center, 2525 Michigan Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90404). The event will highlight original artwork created by individuals with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, whose creative expressions are rich with life, love, and emotion.
Our chapter's “Memories in the Making” program allows people with memory loss to explore their thoughts and feelings through art. It provides a creative outlet for those struggling to communicate, allowing them to share emotions and create memories. The resulting artwork is provocative, expressive, and speaks volumes to families, caregivers and the community.
The event is free, but advance is RSVP required. To be placed on the guest list, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or (323) 930-6280. The evening will include a silent auction with artwork available for bidding. Additionally, a portion of any James Gray Gallery artwork sold during the evening will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
