Friends House is a 50-year old retirement community located in Sandy Spring, Maryland. This non-profit organization was established in 1967 by Quakers to provide affordable housing and fulfilling retirement experiences for seniors. The multicultural community is based on values that include equality, simplicity and peace.
Wellspring Artists began among Friends House residents in 2011 for the purpose of sharing and giving encouragement to those who create art and those who aspire to do so. The group maintains a small gallery space in Flower Alley of the Main Building. It is open to all residents whether or not they are currently practicing artists.
Wellspring Visions will display works made by several residents in a variety of media including; paintings, prints, drawings, pastels, photography, ceramics and textiles.
