An exhibit of art by resident William N. Ale is on view at the Roxbury Senior Center on South Street through June 30.

After retiring in 2009, Mr. Ale broke out his oils and brushes and began to commit himself to the development of his own artistic style.

Many paintings later, he has found that he is most comfortable in the realism genre and found most success with the "still life" format.

Mr. Ale's work is available to buy, and a portion of the sales will be donated to the Friends of the Roxbury Senior Center.
