Clay Center artists among 2018 Art is Ageless® masterpiece level winners
Three winning artists in Clay Center Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2019 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.
“Ageless,” a painting by Arlene Habluetzel, “Patriotic,” a quilt by Janet Heigele and “Iwo Jima,” a 3-D/sculpture by Wayne VanSickle will all appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.
Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 16 other PMMA communities. More than 180 entries were received for this year’s masterpiece competition. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar and greeting cards.
“We are very excited to have these beautiful pieces of art represent Clay Center in the 2019 Art is Ageless Calendar,” said Heather Germann, marketing director. “Each year we are amazed at the artwork that is entered in our local contest as well as those pieces from around our system.”
