March 11, 1997|By Sherry Graham | Sherry Graham,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THERE'S NO DOUBT that art is meant to be enjoyed at any age. Just ask the people living at the Fairhaven Retirement Community in Sykesville. Fairhaven is the host of the Maryland Art League's Spring Art Show through April 15.

Forty-four paintings, including landscapes, portraits, still lifes and abstracts, are on display in the reception area of the Beasman Center at Fairhaven. Many are for sale.

Another area of the reception center features 25 paintings by Fairhaven resident Daisy Troxell. Troxell has been painting only a relatively short time under the tutelage of Carroll County artist Shirley Lippy.

The Troxell paintings are not for sale, but are being displayed in honor of Troxell's 100th birthday, which will be celebrated with family and friends April 1.

The public is invited to enjoy the art show at Fairhaven from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
