FACES Exhibition at Waterworks Visual Arts Center
October 3 - November 3, 2018

Opening Reception for FACES Exhibition
October 18, 2018

Trinity Living Center, Rowan County’s only adult day program, is gearing up for this year’s “Faces of Trinity Living”. This event brings together local artists that donate their time and talents to create portraits of the participants in the medium of their choice (watercolor, oils, sculpture, etc.). This will be our 9th year of “Faces” and each year seems to be more impressive than the last. The reactions of our participant’s family members when they are given the portraits at the closing reception are priceless.


The project is truly a labor of love for the staff of Trinity Living Center as it takes up great deal of time and resources. We host an opening reception at Waterworks Visual Arts Center, where the portraits are revealed to the families for the first time and they remain on public display for the month of October. A closing reception takes place at Trinity Living Center, where the artists give the families their portraits as an heirloom to treasure for years to come. In addition to the receptions, we have all of the portraits professionally framed and prepped prior to the beginning of the display at Waterworks. This event is widely publicized throughout Rowan County (Salisbury Post, All About Seniors, Newsletters, Facebook, etc.) and is meant to raise funds and awareness of Trinity Living Center.
