MASHPEE – A group artist interpretation exhibit is on view at Woodruff’s Art Center in Mashpee Commons.

“Aging Gracefully” accepted submissions from a wide array of artists and photographers on their varied interpretations of how they viewed aging gracefully.

Fifteen pieces were selected for uniquely portraying the theme in the mediums of oil, photography, watercolor, acrylic, collage, pastel, gouache, charcoal, fiber and encaustic wax.

A charcoal portrait, “Great Aunt Val,” expresses the view of Sandra Hadley, of Sandwich, that aging gracefully is about authenticity and acceptance, always being true to yourself, caring for yourself and celebrating yourself regardless of the years.

In a series of acrylic paintings Forestdale artist Candice Ronesi depicts the beauty of older homes, adorned with happy flowers and flags, aging gracefully under the fastidious care of their owners.

Other exhibitors include Joe Fattori, of East Sandwich; Gunjan Laborde, of East Falmouth; Betsy Payne Cook, of Mashpee; Debbie Kurlansky Winer, of Newtown; Annette MacAdams, of Sandwich; Sue Dahling Sullivan, of Mashpee; Chris O’Dell Ferguson, of Martsons Mills; Jan Waitz, of West Newton; Roger Bigg, of UK; Amy Rice, of North Eastham; Cynthia Cruz, of East Falmouth; Helen Koehler, of East Falmouth; and Arthur Tsicoulias, of Mashpee.

The exhibit runs through September 29.

Woodruff’s Art Center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
