Exhibit shows off late-blooming artists

NEVER TOO LATE: “When I was growing up, there was a mindset that either you were born an artist or you weren’t,” said 51-year-old Lola Baltzell of Brookline. “If you weren’t identified in childhood as someone who was good at drawing, you weren’t encouraged to do art.”

It wasn’t until she was approaching 50 that, in Baltzell’s words, she discovered “that whole paradigm is untrue. You can be an artistic person even if you are not able to draw accurately.”
