Clay Center artists among 2017 Art is Ageless® masterpiece level winners
One winning artist in Clay Center Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2018 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.
“Gourd Farmer and Banker,” a mixed media work by Wayne Hafner, will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.
In addition, “Acrylic Painting Church,” a Christmas entry by Marjorie Grater, and “Helen’s Iris,” a painting by Arlene Habluetzel, will be featured on Art is Ageless greeting cards.
Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 16 other PMMA communities. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar and notecards.
“We’re always proud of our Art is Ageless artists, and especially thrilled that one will be featured in the calendar, and two on the notecards,” said Heather Germann, marketing director. “There’s a lot of artistic talent in our community!”
Art is Ageless, open exclusively to people age 65 and older, is a copyrighted program of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America. For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years.
The Art is Ageless program encourages Clay Center 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.
Started in 1980, Art is Ageless is an extension of PMMA’s wellness programs, which focus on mental, physical, social and spiritual health. Residents and friends of the Art is Ageless program are proving that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.
