Last year, generous donors and supporters raised $1.1 million for Hebrew SeniorLife’s health care, communities, research, and teaching that transform the experience of aging. Guests enjoyed remarks from Lesley Stahl and Josh and Pat Seftel, plus a performance by Judy Collins, followed by intimate dinner parties that continued the conversation.

Featuring artist Jane Sherrill, who has been a dedicated visual artist for over 30 years. She works in a variety of media including acrylic and oil paint, mixed-media, colored pencil, graphite and sculpture and has been widely recognized for her talent. Ms. Sherrill writes of her work... as a young adult I lived by the sea and spent my days wandering through pine forests, around ponds, and out to the ocean. My intention was to get lost in my surroundings, becoming one large mind hearing/seeing. When I got lucky I was rewarded with a wide perspective- seeing each individual tree in simultaneous sharp focus, hearing every pine needle fall. I experienced all the details- there was no sense of background, each detail was as important as any other. In painting my seascapes my intention is to recreate that state of mind. I use tiny brushes and lose myself in details, trying to paint each droplet of water so every inch of my painting is flowing, creating an abstract surface rich in detail that coalesces into a compelling seascape as you stand further back.
