Local artist among Art is Ageless® masterpiece level winners 1
A winning artist in Clay Center Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2022 Art is Ageless calendar produced by PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America).
“Log Cabin Flower Garden,” Verna Lee Musselman, quilting, will 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 14 other PMMA communities. More than 160 entries were received for this year’s masterpiece competition. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar with pull-out postcards and greeting cards.
“We’re so proud of all of our resident artists,” said Marketing Director Dani Pounds. “And we’re especially happy that Verna’s entry was recognized as the exceptional work that it is.”
A copyrighted program of PMMA, Art is Ageless is open exclusively to people age 65 and older. For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years.
PMMA’s 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, 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.
