Epsten Gallery is open 10am to 4pm Sunday through Friday

Current Exhibition through January 1, 2023

Artists Andy Newcom and Marn Jensen have been friends and creative co-workers for over 35 years and share a love for older people. When an opportunity arose at their company to work on a passion-led project, they chose to interview elders across the country — to gather their wishes for themselves, their families and for the world. Then, the artist duo created artwork based on those wishes in hopes to bring them to the world in a memorable way.

President's Welcome

What is this place we call The Epsten Gallery?

It’s a room with walls that can be transformed into an interactive art space for multi-generational use; a place where art becomes therapy; a place to explore different media and learn how art and life intersect; a place to explore and get your hands dirty.

It’s a room where I remember my mother-in-law, Jackee Epsten. She wanted to share art with the community of Village Shalom, a facility with a vision to enable senior adults to flourish in a safe, caring, compassionate community. She wanted families to come inside, look at art together and become engrossed in projects. Jackee loved to share her passion of art and movement with her grandchildren. She hoped people would come visit quality gallery exhibits that make us pause, think and appreciate life, as she did.

The Epsten Gallery’s mission is to provide innovative programs and art exhibitions that engage, inspire and enlighten a diverse community through all stages of life, celebrating our common humanity through art.
