The Artists from CLIR (Center for Learning in Retirement) will present their annual Art Exhibit at the AWE Gallery Annex March 7-29. Join the Artists for a reception on Saturday March 7 from Noon to 5:00 PM. Experience wonderful art, enjoy wine/sparkling waters and finger foods, and engage in scintillating conversations with the artists … or just drop by the take in the beauty!

The show features Wall Hangings, paintings, photography, collage and mixed media.

The art works in this exhibit are done by members of the Center for Learning in Retirement (CLIR.), a non-profit educational organization open to all Bay Area seniors.  Presently located at 57 Post Street, Suite 614, in San Francisco, CLIR has offered educational, cultural and social programs to people over age 50 for more than 35 years.
