“Our art programs are such an important part of life at Aberdeen Village,” said Chrissie Ammann, sales and marketing director. “When our residents take part in our art programs, they have found an outlet for their creativity and passion. We are so impressed and proud of the level of artistry that is shown in the Art Is Ageless Program, and we're thrilled that some of our artists will be featured in the calendar!"
