'Proud Guide and Protector'

‘Proud Guide and Protector,’ a bronze sculpture by Louis deMoll, depicts a 99-year-old resident and her little dog who helped her enter the dining room of a retirement community every night.

NEHALEM — What moves you about aging? How does it feel watching people you love grow older? Taking care of people you love? Feeling it in yourself?

Find the beauty in it, and share the results with your community this May.

Art must be delivered between noon and 3 p.m. Wednesday, May 1, at the North County Recreation District Gallery, 36155 Ninth St., in Nehalem (unless other arrangements have been made). The opening reception takes place 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, May 3.

The pieces can later be picked up Thursday, May 30.

Artists are limited to three pieces in any medium, including three-dimensional works. Art does not have to be framed but should be ready to hang.

Work can be for sale, or not. If sold, the artist gets 75%, the Raven Project 15% and the Recreation District 10%.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Raven Project, a group leading conversations and teaching sessions in our North Coast community around issues we face as elders.

For more information, contact Lane deMoll via text or phone at 503-440-1342 or email lane@nehalemtel.net.
