OXFORD – More than 70 works of art created by residents and staff from long-term and day care facilities across the state are currently on display at the New York State Veterans’ Home in Oxford.
The pieces, part of the 19th Annual New York Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (NYAHSA) Art Exhibit, will remain at the Vets’ Home through Thursday.
According to Administrator in Training Noah Davis, the facility is one of only a handful in the Southern Tier to sponsor the show.
“It’s a fantastic exhibit,” Davis said.
The work includes a variety of artistic media, including everything from photography, painting and drawing to fiber art, ceramics and more. Merit award winning Where are the Bees, a submission by Diane Furman, 66, of The Village at Park Ridge in Rochester, was created from beeswax using an ancient “encaustic” technique.
