Learning to Count to One

Featuring the works of Ronald DeWitt Mills-Pinyas
“My work is about learning to count to one. I attend to how the eye traverses one visual quality, one composition, toward another, how awareness jumps and connects, how it is diffused and distracted; how it reconfigures sight, associative groupings, gestalts, how in the process of painting the hand, the eye, the mind and the spirit are reconnected.”

About The Artist

Mills-Pinyas served as Professor of Studio Art for forty years at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon. He was named Edith Green Distinguished Professor of Art in 1994 and was the recipient of the Thomas and Julie Olds Award for Artistic Excellence in 2014. Mills-Pinyas has taught at the University of Costa Rica in San Pedro; Instituto Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; the University of Morelos in Cuernavaca, Mexico; Pitzer College in Claremont, California; Claremont Graduate University; and Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon.

WHY DONATE?

Your donation will help the Geezer Gallery continue its mission and valuable programs for our community. Research reveals that therapeutic art can have a significant impact on the health, well-being, and social engagement of seniors. We have numerous examples of how program participants react to our programs!

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.
