Since the beginning of time, creative expression has brought joy to both its creators and those who experience their art. The Art is Ageless® program offers senior artists the opportunity to share and display their artwork and reaffirms the agelessness of human creativity.
In February, their works are on display at Clay Center Presbyterian Manor.
“It’s inspiring to see the beautiful pieces these seniors have created,” said Heather Germann, marketing director. “The joy it brings to them and others is wonderful, and that’s something we want to celebrate and share with the entire Clay Center community.”
The Art is Ageless exhibit will feature works from local artists who are 65 and older, including a few Clay Center residents. The public is welcome to visit the community to view the exhibit of acrylics, oils, photography and various other mediums, ranging from amateur to professional levels. The exhibit is open February 23, 2019, from 1 – 3 p.m.
In addition to the exhibit, Clay Center will honor local senior artists during a reception at the community at 2:30 p.m. on February 23.
For those interested in entering the competition, there's still time! Artists may choose to enter the exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2014). There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Presbyterian Manor by February 20.
Entry forms and information can be picked up at Clay Center Presbyterian Manor at 924 8th Street, Clay Center, KS, 67432 or by contacting Heather Germann at 785-632-5646 or [email protected]. Or go online to ArtIsAgeless.org to view rules, download an entry form or enter online.
