Senior citizens in Dundee Township are a creative bunch -- and they're holding an art show to prove it.

The Dundee Township Park District's eighth annual Fall Art Show will be from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15-16, at the Rakow Center in the Senior Center wing, 665 Barrington Ave., Carpentersville.

More than 100 oil, watercolor and color pencil paintings will be for sale from different types of artists.

The artists, many of whom hail from East and West Dundee, Algonquin and Elgin, are part of a painting class at the Dundee Township Park District that meets Tuesdays called Tuesday Artists.

"Over the past eight years, the artists have shown a lot of pride in their work," said Helen Shumate, director of communications at Dundee Township Park District.

In case you get hungry or thirsty browsing and admiring the artwork, free refreshments will be on hand.

"We plan on having about 300 to 400 people attend over the weekend," Shumate said.

There will also be a raffle, with the winner receiving a donated painting from the artists. All proceeds go to the Tuesday Artists for supplies.

For details, call (847) 551-4307. Admission is free.
