Southbury, CT - The Watermark at East Hill is presenting artwork from its residents during a three-day exhibit as part of the retirement community’s annual juried Watermark Art Show.

This year’s event will feature a variety of original art mediums, including painting, photography, collages, poetry and prose, crafts, and ship-modeling. All of the art is made by residents at The Watermark at East Hill and will be judged by a panel of local artists from the Greater Southbury area.

“Our annual art show gives us an opportunity to showcase the many amazing artists who reside at our community. Not only do they get to share their talents here with us but also with friends, family and the outside community,” said Michelle Bettigole, Executive Director of The Watermark at East Hill.

The festivities will kick off on Tuesday, June 5 at 3:00 p.m. with an awards ceremony that will highlight “Best in Show” winners in both “Experienced” and “Young at Art” categories. A piano performance and Japanese flower arranging demonstration will round out the day’s events. Light refreshments will be served.

The show will re-open on Wednesday, June 6 from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. and will feature a guitar concert by resident Joan Sprung.

Winning artwork will be sent to Watermark Retirement Communities’ corporate headquarters in Tucson, Arizona where it will compete with resident artwork from Watermark’s 30 communities across the country for a spot in the 2013 Watermark Expressions art calendar.
