Art Program Brings Out Seniors’ Creativity

Create and Celebrate Elder Arts, a month-long event sponsored by the Center for Creative Aging-North Carolina, is featuring theatrical performances, live readings and public storytelling, and art exhibits focusing on senior artists.  Leigh Rosenbough, a former lawyer, has rediscovered his childhood passion for painting and has nine pieces in an upcoming exhibit.  “When an art piece comes together and everything goes right, it almost feels like you’re so concentrated that your arm separates from your body,” said Rodenbough.  “It’s a wonderful feeling and very inspiring in a personal sense.”
