Hempstead Town’s EASEL program (Experienced Art Students Enrichment League) will present an art exhibition at Hempstead Town Hall May 5 through May 29, announced Supervisor Kate Murray.

“Hempstead Town Hall is proud to host this wonderful exhibit, which was created by EASEL program participants. The collection of drawings and paintings reflects the participants’ years of personal experience and vision. I encourage all art enthusiasts to visit Hempstead Town Hall in May to view this display,” said Supervisor Murray.

All are welcome to attend a “Meet the Artists” reception on Tuesday, May 6 from 12 noon to 2 p.m. in Hempstead Town Hall lobby.

“EASEL is a daytime art league administered by the Town of Hempstead’s Department of Senior Enrichment, geared to those individuals who have had previous experience in the field of art, painting or graphics. There is no membership fee to join the town program, which is open to Hempstead Town residents ages 60 and older,” stated Councilman Gary Hudes.

Some of the EASEL program’s benefits include demonstrations, an opportunity to work in one’s medium, as well as participation in discussions and museum trips. New members are always welcome to join. Meetings take place each Tuesday afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Oceanside Senior Center, located at 2900 Rockaway Avenue in Oceanside.

“Senior residents who enjoy creating works of art are encouraged to join the league and take advantage of the opportunity to practice their craft weekly in EASEL’s creative, relaxed atmosphere,” concluded Murray.

For further information about the program, call the Oceanside Senior Center at (516)766-8888 or the Department of Senior Enrichment at (516) 485-8100.
