Visual Expressions is an “over 55” community art group that originated in Prince William County, Virginia. It was established in 2014 to promote creative endeavors to stimulate the mind, reduce the effects of stress-related diseases, and slow cognitive decline. The group meets monthly to discuss new projects, share tips, and learn from guest speakers, in addition to hosting monthly workshops. Visual Expressions consists of graphic artists, art educators, and self-taught hobbyists. Several of the members are also members of the Prince William Arts Society. Soothing landscapes, realistic animal portraits, and vibrant abstract compositions make up their eclectic collection and reflect a lifetime of learning, traveling, and exploring new techniques and media. Visual Expressions: A Timeless Perspective features 11 local artists including: Sandra McClelland Lewin, Sheri Herrick, Mona Phillips, Marlene Rideout, Liane Reiher Nash, Joanne Gelfand, Joan Wyso

ng, Diana Mihaltse, Colleen Ganey, Pamela Newberry, and Lynne Aleknavage. Meet the artists at the opening reception, June 16, 6-8 pm.
