A new juried art exhibit and intergenerational project presented by the UC Berkeley Retirement Center, the Department of Art Practice and Belmont Village Senior Living recently opened with new student art. According, Cary Sweeney, MS, Director UC Berkeley Retirement Center (pictured second from right), “These bi-annual exhibits are a way to weave the culture of UC Berkeley into the Belmont Village Community and it's evolved into so much more. For many students this is their first time presenting their art work to an audience. The residents' curiosity and enthusiasm makes for a wonderful learning experience.” Attending the reception (l-r) UC Berkeley student artist Kimberly Pack; Belmont Village Executive Director Michelle Moros; Cary Sweeny and Mayor Peggy Mc Quaid, City of Albany. Other participating artists are Tamara Pantic, Xinyu Huang and Wing Kei Kwan. The gallery is open to the public, please call Belmont Village Albany at 510-525-4554.
