Local senior artists will be celebrated March 10 and 11 at Clay Center Presbyterian Manor, 924 Eighth Street, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and observes the 41th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program.
Art is Ageless is a trademarked program of PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America). The program offers senior artists the opportunity to share and display their artwork and reaffirms the agelessness of human creativity.
“It’s inspiring to see the beautiful pieces these seniors have created,” said Christi Rice, 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 first Art is Ageless calendar was published in 1981, featuring art from Presbyterian Manor community residents. Since then, the program has expanded to include a juried art competition open to all seniors age 65 and older.
The Art is Ageless exhibit will be held virtually for friends of the program on the community’s Facebook page, and will announce winners on Facebook. Works will be on exhibit at the community for residents only. Winning pieces at the community level move on to a masterpiece level judging to determine which pieces are featured in the annual calendar and note cards.
