Entries underway in the annual art competition at Clay Center PMMA 2021

Clay Center Presbyterian Manor is seeking artists age 65 and older to compete in its annual Art is Ageless® juried exhibit and competition March 10-11, 2021, which will be held at the community.

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 2022 Art is Ageless calendar.

Due to the uncertainty created by COVID-19, Clay Center Presbyterian Manor plans to hold its event virtually for friends of the program on the community’s Facebook page, and to announce winners on Facebook following the event. Works will be on exhibit at the community for residents only.

Artists may choose to enter works for exhibit only. For the competition, works must be completed after the artist is age 65 and must be no more than 5 years old, completed since January 2016. There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional. Works to be entered for judging may be dropped off beginning March 1. The entry deadline is 5 p.m. March 5. Contact Christi Rice at 785-632-5646 or to make drop-off arrangements.

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 14 other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) communities to be judged at the systemwide level.

Entry forms and information can be obtained by contacting Christi Rice at 785-632-5646 or, or access them online at
