On the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00am, join the Low Vision Group. Monthly meetings at the Center, facilitated by Social Worker, Cheryl Lavallee, gives people the opportunity to talk, share concerns and ideas as they navigate their way through life with low vision. Any loss that we experience is difficult to deal with, however, having the support of a group, educating oneself with information, empowers people to live a quality life with the challenges they face. If you or someone you know is experiencing any loss of vision, plan on attending the monthly meeting.

Masterworks of American Art
Your guide is Professor William Kloss. A noted scholar and art historian, Professor Kloss has taught more than 100 courses as an independent lecturer for the Smithsonian Institution’s seminar and travel program. Through 24 engaging and informative lectures, he shares his deep passion for the art of this nation while offering remarkable insights into the relationship between America’s history and its art.
What you discover is a revolution in art. Sometimes borrowing from European models, just as often departing from them, American artists pioneered new attitudes and styles to express the aspirations of a new nation.
Professor Kloss highlights this uniquely American approach to art, examining some of the greatest paintings of the tradition within the larger context of our country’s history and culture. The result is a grand survey of the American experience, in which some of the most critical eras of this nation’s history are viewed through the lens of great art:
