Geezer Gallery


The Geezer Gallery is a unique 501c3 non-profit art organization devoted to celebrating Master Level senior artists and providing “art as therapy” programs, giving voice through art to seniors in our community. Our creativity programs for seniors are designed to enable brain-cell growth, dexterity and an opportunity for personal self-expression.


A key program of The Geezer Gallery is exhibiting and marketing juried artwork created by artists age 60 and above. The Geezer Gallery currently  is collaborating with Artists Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.) to feature new exhibitions and artist receptions at each performance throughout at least the next 3 seasons.

Hope, Dreams & Passions

Embrace Your Passions, Dream a New Dream, Never Stop Believing, Hope. Never give up, you can do anything you want as long as you stick to it. This wonderful gallery of art expresses just that, hopes, dreams and the passion to never give up believing for what a heart desires, it’s like a dream come true.

It is with sincere appreciation from our sponsor Vital Life Foundation with support from Artists Repertory Theater that the Geezer Gallery is privileged to bring to you to enjoy and be inspired by, the art of Samuel Doney and Bill Stevens.

This program is supported by Vital Life Foundation

Wish of a Lifetime mission:
Wishes connect seniors to people, purpose, and passions to eliminate feelings of isolation and help them live vibrant, purposeful lives. A true Wish of a Lifetime achieved makes other goals seem possible, and encourages our Wish recipients to keep dreaming and pursuing their passions.
