SARASOTA, Fla. (Dec. 5, 2017) – Donna Davis, a resident of The Fountains at Lake Pointe Woods in Sarasota, has been featured in the Expressions 2018 Calendar, an award-winning calendar that celebrates active aging and the arts. Her clay bowl, titled “The Cure,” was selected from entries nationwide to be included in the full-color wall calendar and will be featured during the month of September.
“Donna is a very active member of our artist community here at The Fountains and runs our Artist of the Month program, which features artists in the community,” said Peggy Beasley, executive director of The Fountains at Lake Pointe Woods. “Her work is truly incredible and we are so happy to see her honored at a national level.”
Always interested in art and nature, Donna spent 33 years teaching children who were deaf and hearing impaired. After retiring, she volunteered and took classes in nature printing and pottery. Most of her creations are organic in style. This particular piece was inspired by a photo of cells under a microscope.
The calendar is published by Watermark Retirement Communities, a national senior housing operator that manages 50 communities nationwide, including The Fountains at Lake Pointe Woods. This is the 17th year that Watermark has published the calendar nationwide.
The calendar has been awarded a Mature Media Award from the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) and an ADDY Award® from the Tucson Advertising Federation.
Complimentary copies of the Expressions 2018 Calendar are available while supplies last at The Fountains at Lake Pointe Woods, located at 3260 Lake Pointe Blvd in Sarasota.
