Art exhibit in Florence

“Stops Along the Way,” an exhibit of acrylic paintings by Matt Welch of Decatur, will be on display Monday through May 3 at Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts in Florence.

Through his landscapes, water scenes and architectural images, Welch likes to cause the viewer to look at things from a different perspective or slower pace.

The center at 217 E. Tuscaloosa St. is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 760-6379 for information.

Art by Welch, who started out as an architecture major and now works in the nuclear industry, was on display at Decatur’s Carnegie Visual Arts Center in December and January.


Senior School

Elder Law 101, Maintain Your Brain, Self-defense for Seniors and more will be covered Tuesday during Morgan County Senior School 2007.

This free program will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at First Baptist Church of Decatur, 123 Church St. N.E.

Sessions are designed to help those 50 and over sift through the various services available for seniors and get up-to-date on issues.

Home safety and volunteering are among other topics, and screenings will include hearing, vision, glucose, height and weight.

For information or to register groups larger than five, call American Senior Assistance Programs Inc. in Huntsville, 382-0426 or 866-365-2727.
