A group show of art by senior artists associated with SPRYE — members, volunteers — is on display in the Art Gallery at The Osborn until March 30.

SPRYE helps senior citizens in Rye and neighboring communities remain in their homes. The Osborn displays art for the enjoyment of patients, guests, residents, and staff while supporting the local creative community. The relationship between the two organizations dates from SPRYE’s startup, when The Osborn gave them office space for several years.

Three different media are represented among the almost three-dozen works on display by four talented retirees. An exhibit program contains biographies on each of the artists.

  • Needlepoints by Nancy Platt, a retired human resources professional;
  • En plein air photographs by Tom Saunders, a retired telecommunications engineer and SPRYE’s first president;
  • After retiring from a marketing career, Susan Storms embarked on a “Delight in Being” theme for her photography;
  • Oil paintings, mainly landscapes, by Marjorie Wynne, a retired Rye schoolteacher.

The public is invited to view the exhibit any day of the week from 4-6, but The Osborn asks that you call 925-8218 at least a day before you would like to visit. The Osborn Art Gallery is located in the Rehabilitation Center, which may be accessed through the Pavilion building.
