Joel Anderson: senator, policymaker…and art lover! Earlier this year, during CALA’s California Inspires! art show at the State Capitol, Senator Anderson presented artist Jean Ambrose with a certificate on the Senate Floor. But his appreciation for our artists didn’t stop there.
Last month, Senator Anderson visited the home of two other artists featured in the show. Joyce Westlake Holmes and James Richard Youse, both residing at Sunshine Care, were honored during a morning ceremony.
The community, known for its intergenerational programming, began the ceremony with a flag salute and choir presentation from an area school. Then, each artist was honored with a certificate by Senator Anderson.
Congratulations to both artists! You show that, no matter our age, our lives are enriched by engaging in creative endeavors. View Holmes’ “California Poppy” and Youse’s “A Disney Bird,” or view all pieces in CALA’s virtual gallery.
