We’re always cooking up something interesting for members of our greater community. From art exhibitions and open house brunches to our popular Just Ask educational seminars, find out what’s happening this month.
Clay Center Presbyterian Manor has issued a call for entries for the Art is Ageless® juried exhibit to be held February 19 – 20, 2020. Entries of artistic works will be accepted from any area artist who is 65 years of age or older to exhibit and/or compete for an opportunity to be featured in the 40th anniversary Art is Ageless calendar in 2021. Artists may choose to enter the exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2015). 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 14. The Art is Ageless® program encourages Presbyterian Manor residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its annual competition, as well as art classes, musical and dramatic events, educational opportunities and current events discussions throughout the year. Local competition winners will join winners from 15 other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) communities to be judged at the systemwide level. Entry forms and information can be picked up at Clay Center Presbyterian Manor, 924 Eighth Street, Clay Center, or by contacting Christi Rice at 785-632-5646 or [email protected] Or go online to ArtIsAgeless.org to view rules, download an entry form or enter online.
Local senior artists will be celebrated February 19 and 20 at Clay Center Presbyterian Manor, 924 Eighth Street, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and observes the 40th 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 open from 1 to 3 p.m. February 19 and 20 and feature works from local artists. 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. 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.
In addition to the exhibit, Clay Center Presbyterian Manor will honor local senior artists during a reception at the community from 3 to 6 p.m. February 20.
