We’re always cooking up something interesting for members of our greater community. From art exhibitions and open house brunches to our popular Just Ask educational seminars, find out what’s happening this month.
Local senior artists will be celebrated April 6 through 30 at Emporia Presbyterian Manor, 5400 Industrial Road, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and observes the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program. Art is Ageless is a trademarked program of PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America). The program offers senior artists the opportunity to share and display their artwork and reaffirms the agelessness of human creativity. “It’s inspiring to see the beautiful pieces these seniors have created,” said Crystal Stock, marketing director. “The joy it brings to them and others is wonderful, and that’s something we want to celebrate and share with the entire Emporia community.” The first Art is Ageless calendar was published in 1981, featuring art from Presbyterian Manor community residents. Since then, the program has expanded to include a juried art competition open to all seniors age 65 and older. The Art is Ageless exhibit will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekends April 6 through 30 and feature works from local artists. The public is welcome to visit the community to view the exhibit of acrylics, oils, photography and various other mediums, ranging from amateur to professional levels. Winning pieces at the community level move on to a masterpiece level judging to determine which pieces are featured in the annual calendar and note cards. In addition to the exhibit, Emporia Presbyterian Manor will honor local senior artists during a reception at the community at 3:30 p.m. April 29.
