What Inspires an 87 Year Old Artist?

Author: Gayle Farman and Joanne O'Connor

Donna Gatto, 87, has been a resident at Kingsway Manor Assisted Living for seven years. A former elementary school teacher and librarian, Donna’s inspiration for our October Art from the Heart painting entitled, “Rolling Hills” came from the farm country and foothills in the Hudson Valley.   Please consider a donation today to honor more artists like Donna by including her work in a digital slide show.
