OLLI is honored to host a new art exhibit at the Cheezem Education Center through Tuesday, March 31. The work of artist Michael Faucher is mainly in pastels and focused on seascapes and landscapes. Faucher has a certain emotion and spirit that he said comes from nature itself and was communicated to him "to the soul."


The exhibit is called "Light into Darkness," and OLLI will be hosting an art reception on Thursday, March 5. Drop in from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM . Thank you to OLLI Member and Volunteer Koreen Sweet for sharing the work of this remarkable artist.
