Depression Screening for Older Adults

Depression Screening for Older Adults

From Fairfax County:

Do you ever wonder if you might have bouts of sadness that are especially hard to get over?  Do your family members worry about you and tell you that you might be depressed?  You probably know that everyone experiences sadness in life, disappointments, and the grief that accompanies the loss of a loved one, but depression is different.  People who are sad can generally continue their daily routines and activities.  But serious depression is a medical illness that interferes with a person’s ability to function as they normally do.

Environmental Artist Alison Sigethy Presents "Understory" at The Art League

Environmental Artist Alison Sigethy Presents "Understory" at The Art League

Environmental artist Alison Sigethy draws inspiration from the natural world surrounding her. From collages created of natural fibers to sculptures made from recycled glass, her works have an innate organic quality. Her multimedia solo exhibit, Understory, will be featured in The Art League Gallery, January 6 – February 7, 2011.

Sigethy has created an installation that invites the viewer to explore the often unnoticed, yet essential parts of the forest. She emphasizes the “quiet beauty” of the unseen through layers of glass fungi, collages that evoke the striations of cliff sides, and delicate snowflakes.
