Artful Aging

Artists Bring Healthy Aging Into Focus

Nov 18, 2016 | By Liz Merritt



Jeff Reich and Farraday Newsome have sculpted a life at 50+ that many would envy.

They are renowned contemporary ceramic artists and lecturers whose work is widely exhibited in galleries, museums and public art collections throughout the United States.

They live and work side-by-side in their sprawling Southwest art studio, surrounded by the desert flora that has inspired their exquisite artistry, organic gardens, and nature trails humming with wildlife.

CREATIVE ENERGY

Despite their professional successes, this husband-and-wife team emits a peaceful vibe that comes from a lifetime of creative work, as well as a contagious energy fueled by their passion for healthy aging.

“I want to be surrounded by people who are energetic and passionate about life,” says Reich. “You choose how your respond to your circumstances in life. And in aging, I believe mindset is key.”

It wasn’t always this way. At 55, Reich’s healthy awakening dawned five years ago when he turned 50...

We were recently interviewed by Arizona writer Liz Merritt for an article on her website http://boombaby.me . Liz created this website to educate and inspire positive attitudes and healthy lifestyles in the context of aging. She specifically targets the Boomer generation, but her thoughts and insights are useful to all ages.


Merritt writes:

BOOMbaby is the product of a lifetime of experiences, acquired wisdom, and the insane realization that we are marching toward what society would dictate is the terminal point of our highly productive careers... BOOMbaby is dedicated to the active lifestyles, health, nutrition and vitality of the 50+ generation. It’s a place where adventurous Baby Boomers go to share their stories, triumphs, adventures, experiences, and more. We are determined to age healthfully and unapologetically as we explore the second half of our lives.”

Our annual holiday studio sale is coming up soon! Here are a few small new works by Jeff Reich and Farraday Newsome that will be available. The sale will, as always, be the first two weekends of December. Dates, times and location below!

During the sale, we also transform our studio into more display space.
