The Art of Living Well

As one of Houston’s premier retirement communities, located minutes from The Galleria, The Village of Tanglewood offers Seniors Independent Living and so much more. Offering a truly comprehensive approach to Life Enrichment with programs designed to meet emotional, social, spiritual, physical and educational wellness, residents are empowered to Live Life Well.


For Roddie Stiles living wall is about “choice” and it’s ultimately what influenced her decision to make the Village of Tanglewood her home. “I love the idea of choice…that I can be with friends and participate in a host of activities or resign myself to my apartment and be alone… where I love to paint…there’s always something going on,” says Stiles.


Recently, Stiles’ paintings were on display in the Village Bistro. Her works were so popular, she even managed to sell a few. It was this fact, that lead the Village of Tanglewood to create an “Art Wall”. With the generous participation of Archway Gallery, which is a partnership of regionally and nationally recognized professional artists, the community is transformed every 6 weeks or so, showcasing the talents and works of a different artist. “The community is instantly transformed with every new exhibit. It’s truly exciting for residents, their family members and the team here. We love it”, says Executive Director Bruce Hutmacher.


To launch a new exhibit, The Village of Tanglewood schedules a mini art-opening event with an opportunity for residents, their family members and the public to view the works and visit directly with the artist.  Complete with wine, champagne and delectable hors d’ oeuvres the event makes for a very informative and entertaining evening.
