Across the Arbor Acres campus, residents and visitors will find original pieces of art both indoors and out that define our emphasis on the beauty and art of living well. We’d like to introduce you to one pieces of art in particular–an installation called “The Counsel of Elders,” created by artist Carl Peverall, that sits in front of Asbury Place/assisted living.
In 2012, Carl was commissioned by Arbor Acres to create a piece of art in his signature stone sculpture style that represented holistic wellness, those elements that needed to be balanced within the human form to achieve wellbeing. Included in this installation is a water element (life), and several individual sculptures: Partnership ( the arch, which represents social wellbeing) and right to left, The Gift (vocational), The Calling (spiritual), Thought (intellectual) and Freedom (emotional).
Carl’s mother is now a resident at Arbor Acres, and he credits her support for allowing him to pursue his creativity as a young child. Carl’s son, Ethan, assists Carl with the creation of these unique stone statues. Recently, PBS in Charlotte profiled Carl and Ethan, and shared how they create their magnificent artwork.
