Clay Center Presbyterian Manor announces Art is Ageless® winners

Clay Center Presbyterian Manor is excited to announce the winners of its recent Art is Ageless® juried competition and exhibit.

“We’re honored that local seniors allowed us to exhibit and judge their wonderful works,” said Debrah Wood, social services designee. “Art is Ageless is unique because it only features the works of artists who are 65 and over. Our artists prove it’s never too late to create art, in any form.

Clay Center Presbyterian Manor hosted a reception for the winning artists listed here:

Best of Show amateur: Nora Houting, “Princess Hyacinth”
Fiber Arts amateur: Dorothy Debenham, “Mint Baby Blanket”
Needlework amateur: Nora Houting, “Maynard G. Krebs”
Quilting amateur: Darlene Bradford, “Contrast”
Sculpture/3-D amateur: Don Cobler, “Halloween House”

Local competition winners will join winners from 14 other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®) senior living communities to be judged at the masterpiece level. Winning entries at the masterpiece level are selected for publication in PMMA’s annual Art is Ageless calendar and note cards.

Art is Ageless is a copyrighted program of PMMA®. For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years. Started in 1980, Art is Ageless is an extension of PMMA’s wellness programs, which focus on mental, physical, social, and spiritual health. The program encourages Clay Center Presbyterian Manor residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its annual competition.
