Fall into Zentangle
A new exhibit is coming to the Center for Artful Living in Westlake, featuring work by local Zentangle artists. The artists are students of Judy Montgomery from Lakewood, who is a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). Judy has been teaching Zentangle at the Rocky River Senior Center for the past seven years. She has a large following of local Zentangle practitioners and 15 of those artists are participating in the exhibit at the Center.
Zentangle art is a method of drawing structured patterns that helps artists relax, focus and expand their imaginations. The patterns are used to fill what are called “strings,” various shaped spaces that fill an artist’s piece. Shading with pencil is usually added to show dimension and contrast.
This is a show you won’t want to miss! An art reception will take place on Friday, Oct. 18, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Center for Artful Living, 26633 Detroit Road. The exhibit will run through Dec. 4. It is free and open to the public Mondays through Fridays, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
The Carolyn L. Farrell Foundation at the Center for Artful Living is a non-profit organization. The Foundation provides enrichment in the arts and community outreach for individuals with dementia and other brain health issues. Programs support family members, care providers and others concerned about these issues. The Foundation was created in honor of the late Carolyn L. Farrell who was affected by dementia.
