Artist Opens the Geezer Gallery to celebrate the creativity of elders
Amy Henderson knew the name The Geezer Gallery would be provocative. She was opening an airy 1,400-square-foot space in Portland, Ore., for artists over age 60, and she christened it The Geezer Gallery.
About 60 older artists have been selected to display their work — paintings and prints, sculpture, photography, furniture, jewelry, ceramics — at the gallery itself. But there are many others who lend their art to traveling shows that visit retirement communities or exhibit at local businesses.
