Mary Nell Venable and Leah Lukins, residents of BridgePoint at Los Altos, recently exhibited their art in the California Assisted Living Association Art Show, “California Inspires! Expressions of Assisted Living Residents.”

Participating in the exhibition, which opened last month and runs through Friday at the California State Capitol, allowed the two artists to travel to Sacramento and meet with district legislators. Their visit included a waterfront lunch and greeting at the Capitol.

Lukins contributed a handmade quilt, “California Wildlife Wall Hanging,” for display.

“I can’t believe it is hanging on the State Capitol’s wall,” she said.

Venable wrote a poem for the exhibition, “Images of California.”

“We had a great time accompanying Leah and Mary Nell on the trip to Sacramento,” said Alex Gerasimov, wellness director for BridgePoint. “They are amazing ladies, and we’ll all remember this day forever. This is what it’s all about.”

BridgePoint, a Kisco Senior Living facility, offers lifelong learning programs that enhance active-aging lifestyles in six dimensions of wellness: physical, spiritual, cognitive/intellectual, social, emotional and vocational. BridgePoint offers licensed assisted-living and independent-living studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment homes.
