WARREN, NJ - SCLSNJ’s Warren Township Library branch is hosting a group art exhibit of paintings featuring the work of students and artists affiliated with the Warrenbrook Senior Center of Somerset County watercolor paint class. This is the fourth year the Library, located at 42 Mountain Blvd. in Warren Twp., will be showcasing the work from students at the Warrenbrook Senior Center of Somerset County.  


According to Gwen Chalker, manager of the Warrenbrook Senior Center, which is part of the Somerset County Office on Aging & Disability, the first watercolor paint class was held at the Senior Center in January 2013. The class gives students who have never picked up a paintbrush a chance to become artists and painters who had not painted in years an opportunity to hone their skills.


The Center has selected the month of May for the art show because, as per the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services, May is Older Americans Month and the theme this year is “Age Out Loud.” Chalker said, “Painting is a way for the older population to develop a new hobby and to begin an ‘expressive’ new journey.”
