From Jessica McKay:

SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA—It’s safe to say that Sidney Foster, 95, had no idea how much his life would change when he attended his first abstract art class at Greenspring retirement community in October 2010.   Now, Foster is preparing for his first professional art show at the Geoffrey Diner Gallery in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, D.C.  Starting May 27, several of Foster’s paintings will be on display and for sale at the gallery.  The exhibit will close on June 25, just a few days after Foster’s 96th birthday.
