The Lois & Richard England Gallery at Iona

Gallery at- IonaDedicated to Lois and Richard England, longtime supporters of Iona and the arts, our Gallery visually demonstrates Iona’s commitment to promoting healthy aging and creative expression.

From 2008-2018, our building  featured artworks by talented artists from the area who were 60+ as a way to showcase how our community members age well and live well — and continue to creatively express themselves. Learn more about our former featured artists.

In addition to these shows, donated artworks by well-known artists such as Willem de Looper and Arlene Raven, friends of Iona, former Guest Artists, and participants in our Wellness & Arts Center enliven Iona’s building as part of a permanent collection.
