The exhibit will continue the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless program, which produced its first calendar in 1981. This year, due to COVID-19, the exhibit will be at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire St., Lawrence, Kansas.
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.
Artists may choose to enter works for exhibit only. For the competition, works must be completed after age 65 and have been completed in the past five years (since January 2016). There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional. Entries are due to Lawrence Presbyterian Manor, 1429 Kasold Dr., by 4 p.m. March 5. Contact Christie Patrick at 785-841-4262 to arrange a drop-off time.
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.
Entry forms and information can be obtained by contacting Christie Patrick at 785-841-4262 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or accessed online at ArtIsAgeless.org.
