Creativity Has No Expiration Date

Ageless Artisan Craft Fair celebrates creativity, passion and talent of older adults

The Department of Senior Affairs, along with event sponsor Western Sky Community Care is giving Albuquerque's senior center members an opportunity to showcase their many talents at the Ageless Artisan Craft Fair hosted at North Domingo Baca Multigenerational Center on May 21, 2022 from 9am-1pm. The free event invites the community to come shop the artworks from our community’s Ageless Artisans featuring unique, one-of-a-kind items such as tin art, wood work, ceramics, photography, mixed media, jewelry, and much more.

“Age should never become a barrier to the pursuit of making art, and creativity does not have a shelf life,” said Anna Sanchez, Director of Senior Affairs. “At our senior and multigenerational centers, we have come across many talented people and want to create an avenue to celebrate and support these older artists in our local community.”

“At Western Sky we believe health and culture are interwoven. Celebrating New Mexico Arts and Culture and lifting up our community is at the core of our work. We are delighted to partner with the Albuquerque Department of Senior Affairs to bring this experience to our community,” said Chris Hummer, CEO & President of Western Sky Community Care.

The event will also feature a car show, food trucks, live music from Albuquerque’s senior and multigenerational center groups, along with other local favorites.  Admission is free and open to the general public. Visit cabq.gov/seniors/events for more information.
