Seniors at the Historic Rum River Condos in downtown Anoka gathered Sept. 24 in the building’s meeting room to share with other residents the art they’re working on.

For the first time ever, 11 residents showcased their work to other residents. The work included paintings, sculptures, quilts, knitted and crocheted pieces, drawings and a short play.

Resident Dianne Luckett, who’s a sculptor and a painter, proposed the event so seniors in the building could have a chance to display  their work.

“I wanted to bring artists together and show each other what we can do,” she said. “We’re all up in our apartments, and oftentimes we don’t get to show our art or see the work others are doing. This is a great way to share our art and encourage others to try some of it as well.”
