“A Summer’s Evening of Art”! Alzheimer’s Art from the Hearts of our artists at Stone Valley Alzheimer’s Special Care Center. 6155 Stone Valley Dr., Reno.
A huge Thank You to Tyler Stafford for contributing his thought provoking lyrics and voice to our event. We sincerely appreciate your generosity Tyler!
It was a warm and breezy summer evening of art, refreshments and live acoustic music by singer/songwriter Tyler Stafford! We began our classes at the new facility two years ago and have enjoyed making new friends and fabulous creations during our art experience sessions on a weekly basis. The artists use soft and oil pastels, women’s cosmetics, acrylic and water color paints and collaging with our painted paper library.
The Art Gallery in the lobby will be on display all of July!
At the Shore by Trini at Stone Valley!
To brighten our artist’s rooms they created Floral Garlands! They painted fresh, bright summer colors with acrylics in solids and visual textures as the first step in their garland project. Whimsical florals are drawn on the back of the painted paper and cut out. Circles are cut or torn and layered to create the centers for their fantasy florals. Leaves also adorn some of the florals for added dimension. They attached the florals to green yarn to create a 6′ long garland to adorn their windows or walls!

Our Annual Auction 2015:
Thank you to everyone who attended our fundraising Art Auction of Alzheimer’s Art on October 22 at Arbors Memory Care Community! The newly remodeled venue was beautiful and the art display was glorious thanks to the volunteers and staff of the Arbors and Stone Valley Alzheimer’s Center! A sincere Thank You to everyone who donated raffle prizes and the guests and attending artists who made the event so memorable, we are sincerely grateful!
In celebration of our “10th Anniversary” car show we wanted to honor George Winkelmaier who first organized this event in honor of his father who is living with Alzheimer’s. George was the manager of Summit Racing Equipment and very sadly passed away in 2011. In honor of George, everyone’s sporting a mustache! To make sure George could hear us…the family released purple & silver star balloons while all the cars honked their horns…the only thing left were hugs and tears.
WE MISS YOU GEORGE!

Moments of Memory… Art from the Hearts of Alzheimer’s Artists.
A non-profit program of visual art expression developed for those living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. With passion and purpose Moments of Memory classes create a safe, supportive environment for social interaction and self-expression resulting in a non-critical and fail-safe experience. Specific techniques enable individuals to focus on a task at hand and experience a sense of accomplishment, counteracting feelings of depression and isolation. Having the opportunity to share the tangible reward of their efforts in a group setting renews self-confidence and trust. Reconnecting with society in a productive community restores a sense of self even in the later stages of the artist’s illness.
ART: I’ve Got Your Back by Babs, created with women’s cosmetics!
