Every year, FiftyForward Martin Center hosts a fine art show and sale to benefit its senior center, a non-profit organization encouraging people 50+ to live active and healthy lifestyles.

As in previous years, the exhibit will feature a diverse and extensive collection of art with work from nearly 40 artists, including Bitsy Hughes, Lisa McReynolds, Frank Baggett, Jade Reynolds, Shannon Haas, Ron York, Streater Spencer, John Cannon, and newcomers to the visual arts scene, including Nashville’s renowned theatre veteran Nan Gurley. This year’s featured artist is J.J. Sneed. New to this year’s show are pottery and sculpture, from potter Al Sherick and sculptor Steve Kaczmarczyk.

Sherry Coss, Martin Center Associate Director, has again enlisted artist and gallery owner Ron York to curate the exhibit. The event provides an opportunity for the public to view and purchase the work of several talented regional artists while enjoying the magnificent setting of the Martin Center. Proceeds benefit the FiftyForward Martin Center. Martin Masters presenting sponsor is Cigna HealthSpring.

On Friday, October 14, from 5 until 8 p.m., meet and greet the artists and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres compliments of Grapevine Wine and Spirits and G Catering. Admission is free, but donations are welcome. The 2016 Martin Masters Art Show and Sale continues on Saturday, October 15, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Martin Center is conveniently located at 960 Heritage Way, off Concord Road in Brentwood. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.fiftyforward.com or www.themartincentertn.org.
