CC Young, a premier, non-profit senior living community, is excited to announce the call for art and writing entries for its 2022 Spirit is Ageless Art & Writing Contest. Residents of CC Young and the general public, age 55 and better, are encouraged to enter. Online registration begins on August 9, and entries will be accepted on August 23 and 24, 2022, at The Point at CC Young.  The Spirit is Ageless show will be on display at The Point at CC Young from August 30 through October 28, 2022.

Starting in 1999, the Spirit is Ageless Art & Writing Contest continues to be a very special event for the Dallas-Fort Worth community and CC Young. The annual contest, art gallery show and celebration of artists and writers unites the community to highlight submissions from 15 categories in an effort to showcase each person’s ageless artistry, the capability to thrive, and ambition to share their creativity with the public, regardless of one’s stature. All ability levels are welcome to participate in the contest.

“CC Young is dedicated to serving our residents and community at large so that each individual can grow in body, mind and spirit, no matter their life’s circumstances or limitations. This annual contest inspires and celebrates each individual’s creativity and artistic expression,” said Brian Parman, Director of The Point & Pavilion at CC Young. 

The contest is open to the general public, age 55 or better, as well as residents of CC Young. The art is to have been completed at age 55 or better and created by the person entering the piece. CC Young residents are limited to entering two (2) pieces and there is NO cost. All others are limited to entering one (1) complimentary piece and may enter one (1) additional piece of art for a $10.00 entrance fee, which must be paid at the time of art delivery/drop off.  Art will be accepted in the following categories: drawing & illustration (pen, ink, pastel, scratch board), hard crafts (ceramic, glass, pottery), painting – acrylic, painting – oil & pastel, painting – watercolor, photography, poetry, prose, sculpture, soft crafts – decorative, soft crafts – sewing, soft crafts – textile, master works, and group projects.  For full contest details and online entry form, visit www.ccyoung.org/events.  If you need additional information or have any questions, contact Angela Castillo by email at acastillo@ccyoung.org or call (214) 841-2831.

Winners will be recognized at a celebration held at The Point at CC Young Saturday, Friday, October 28, 2022, from 2 to 4 p.m. This year’s featured speaker will be Dr. Laura Evans, Associate Professor, University of North Texas College of Visual Arts & Design. Evans’ presentation “F is for Fake: Han van Meegeren and the Vermeer Forgeries,” will focus on Henricus Antoniu “Han” van Meegeren, who is widely considered to be one of the most accomplished and beloved art forgers of all time.  Van Meegeren specialized in creating work in the style of Vermeer, “rediscovering” lost work by this famed painter (that he had really painted), and selling it to collectors, curators, and even the Third Reich.  In this lecture, Evans will dive into van Meegeren’s complex forgery schemes and how he eventually earned fame and immortality as one of history’s most loved art forgers. RSVPs are required at rsvp@ccyoung.org or call 214-841-2831.

Dallas-based personal style expert Bobbi Schwartz has released “Chic Casual Dressing: The Budget Guide,” the second book in her Style Essentials series. The first book in the series, “Build Your Ultimate Wardrobe” is focused on creating the foundation of an investment wardrobe while in this latest addition, Schwartz has chosen to spotlight chic, casual dressing on a budget.

“I have found that most women struggle when it comes to creating chic casual looks, and at a time when many are struggling financially, I thought it important to share my wealth of experience when it comes to finding quality clothing at discount pricing. At the core of it all is the concept of fiscal responsibility,” Schwartz said.

In “Chic Casual Dressing: The Budget Guide,” Schwartz’s focus is on teaching the reader how to find the perfect casual silhouettes and where to find them at value pricing. She also shares her philosophy that while one’s essential wardrobe should be made up of designer-quality investment pieces, their casual wardrobe can be acquired anywhere from Neiman Marcus to Target. Schwartz stresses that you can look fabulous at any price point when you know what to look for and where to look for it.

“The most important thing to keep in mind as you’re reading the book is this—the pieces in your casual wardrobe can BE cheap, you just don’t want them to LOOK cheap,” Schwartz added.

Throughout the book Schwartz teaches the reader how to look for quality and versatility in their casual pieces so that they can be mixed and matched to create numerous chic looks. The book also acts as a guide featuring photographs of various outfit options and highlighting how simply changing one element of an outfit can change a look entirely. Schwartz also recommends various wardrobe essentials that will help extend the reach of the casual wardrobe, so that the reader can style their own looks by mixing and matching pieces, without breaking the bank.

 “There is a real art to shopping discounted and inexpensive pieces that look expensive. And combining those fabulous pieces to create easy, chic, daily looks, well, that’s an art in and of itself,” Schwartz emphasized.

Schwartz is the founder and CEO of The Bobbi Schwartz Group, a Dallas-based personal styling company and Be Iconic Style (beiconicstyle.com), an online lifestyle resource for women focused on personal transformation through style. During her time in the fashion industry, which spans nearly two decades, she has worked for some of the world’s top retailers and design houses and held almost every position imaginable. Among others, she has worked for such notables as Neiman Marcus, Ralph Lauren, and Forty-Five Ten.

Schwartz left retail to pursue a career as a personal stylist in 2003, motivated by the dramatic uptick in confidence that she witnessed when simple updates were made to her clients’ wardrobes and personal appearances. That newfound confidence often translated to even bigger life changes which prompted Schwartz to found Be Iconic Style in 2012. She inspires her followers to transform their lives through style through weekly blog posts, curated online shopping, and informative videos on social media.

In 2013, Schwartz released “Build Your Ultimate Wardrobe,” the first book in the Style Essential series. Set up as a workbook, it guides women through building the foundation of an essential, investment wardrobe that works for all women, regardless of profession or lifestyle. Both “Build Your Ultimate Wardrobe” and “Chic Casual Dressing: The Budget Guide” are available through Amazon for $9.99 each.

CC Young and The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of North Texas (OLLI at UNT) signed a three-year Partnership Agreement with CC Young Senior Living in Dallas. As part of this agreement, OLLI at UNT’s Dallas-based courses will be held exclusively at The Point, CC Young’s 20,000 square foot multipurpose facility, which is open to both CC Young residents and senior adults in the general public.

This exclusive partnership continues OLLI at UNT’s expansion beyond Denton County. Prior to this agreement, OLLI at UNT offered non-credit courses for adults over the age of 50 at seven classroom locations across Denton, Collin and Tarrant Counties. 

“Expanding into Dallas is a logical next step,” said OLLI at UNT Director Stephanie Reinke. “We are thrilled to begin this relationship with CC Young and bring our courses to their best-in-class facilities. Senior adults throughout the Dallas area will now have convenient, affordable access to lifelong learning thanks to this commitment by the leadership of CC Young.”

CC Young President and CEO Russell Crews has maintained a close relationship with his alma mater since earning an MBA in finance from the UNT College of Business in 1986. He is a Lifetime Member of the UNT Alumni Association and has served on the College of Business Dean’s Advisory Board. In 2002, Crews was recognized with the university’s Outstanding Alumni Service Award.

“UNT holds a special place in my heart as does CC Young. This partnership continues our mission to foster premier environments where every life at every age can be valued and enriched. Engagement and continuing education are key elements for life enrichment at any age. We could not be more happy to offer this robust curriculum to our residents and area seniors – especially during our centennial year,” Crews said. “As Rev. C. C. Young set out to do 100 years ago, offering this amazing curriculum and engagement continues his ministry to enhance the quality of life for all we serve.”

OLLI at UNT courses cover a wide range of topics and are taught by subject matter experts, including both active and retired university faculty. A single course consists of up to four 90-minute sessions, with no mandatory assignments, tests or grades. Members attend the courses that interest them and learn in an open environment with their peers. 

“The value of lifelong learning is evident,” Reinke said. “Research indicates that staying intellectually and socially engaged can offset cognitive decline, improve memory and even increase a person’s lifespan.” 

OLLI at UNT courses will begin at The Point on the CC Young campus near White Rock Lake in the Fall 2022 semester. CC Young residents will be able to attend courses at no additional cost. Members of the surrounding community can join OLLI at UNT for as little as $55 per year and $15 per course. An all-inclusive discounted rate of $85 per year is available to military veterans and their spouses, as well as members of the UNT Alumni and Retiree Associations.
