This is Gerda. She is turning 96 years old this next week and has a solo show of her paintings up at Capitol Lakes. Gerda says, "she never had time to do art until now." She had no formal lessons and just started painting in 2011. Now, she can't stop! Every Friday, Bare Knuckle Arts heads up to their art studio and Gerda is there always early for the Open Studio Acrylic Painting class. Capitol Lakes is a retirement community up by the Capitol here in Madison, WI. They have an a amazing collection of art as well as rotating shows highlighting the many talents of their residents. Gerda is proof that you are never too old to try something new!
