A nonprofit gallery showcasing senior professional artists and providing enriching art therapy programs to the senior community.

An occasional artist before retiring after a career in physics, Ross started painting more seriously several years ago. Whenever possible, he incorporates something of previous interest in mathematics and physics into his art. It may be in the name of the painting or the inclusion of equations or a more abstract visual connection to an important event.
Long recognized for his narrative bronze works, Martin explores new methods that combine materials in innovative ways inspired from scientific news and galactic imagery. Each piece is entirely different base on the position of light.

Thank you for your continued support of The Geezer Gallery’s mission to provide opportunities for older adults to participate in the creative arts!
Your tax-deductible donations help sustain our evidence-based therapeutic art programs for low-income seniors and the celebration of master-level senior artists.
Whether you donate $50 or $500, we appreciate every gift and the profound impact it has on the well-being of older adults in our greater community.
The Geezer Gallery partnered with Emerson House for patients with Alzheimer’s to provide Moment to Moment, our evidence-based therapeutic art program for residents with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
Because of its success, we reached out to other facilities to offer Moment to Moment weekly. Residents may not remember from week to week, so they create a unique art piece each week. When a body of work is completed over several months, the work is professionally bound in a portfolio and presented to the resident to keep. During their time in class, we have witnessed their delight and how their lives are enhanced by art! Your donation will help us continue these programs that enrich the lives of our seniors, their families, and our community.
Thank you for the generosity of our individual donors, foundations, and corporate sponsors.
Together we are creating a healthy
and happier world for our elders.
The Geezer Gallery is a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to showcasing master-level senior artists and providing therapeutic arts programs to the local senior community, giving voice through art to seniors!
