Annual Art is Ageless® call for entries underway at Emporia Presbyterian Manor
Emporia Presbyterian Manor is calling all artists age 65 and older to enter or exhibit in the annual Art is Ageless® juried exhibit and competition at the campus, 2300 Industrial Road, Emporia, Kan. The exhibit is scheduled for April 16, 2021.
Entries of artistic works will be accepted from any area artist who is 65 years of age or older to exhibit and/or compete for an opportunity to be featured in the 2022 Art is Ageless calendar.
The exhibit will continue the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) program, celebrated with the 2021 Art is Ageless calendar.
Due to the uncertainty created by COVID-19, Emporia Presbyterian Manor plans to hold its event virtually for friends of the program on the community’s Facebook page, and to announce winners during a Facebook live event. Works will be on exhibit at the community for residents only.
Artists may choose to enter works for exhibit only. For the competition, the artist must have been 65 at the time of creation and have completed the work in the past five years (since January 2016). There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Presbyterian Manor by April 6. To arrange drop-off of artwork, contact Crystal Stock at 620-343-2613 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Art is Ageless® program encourages 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.
Local competition winners will join winners from 14 other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) communities to be judged at the systemwide level.
