UPCOMING EVENTS

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.

Artists age 65 and older are sought for the annual Art is Ageless® juried exhibit sponsored by Lawrence Presbyterian Manor March 15 – 26, 2021.

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 cpatrick@pmma.org, or accessed online at ArtIsAgeless.org.

Local senior artists will be celebrated March 15 - April 4 at Lawrence Presbyterian Manor's annual Art is Ageless® exhibit. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibit will be at the Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire Street.

The exhibit will continue the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless program, which produced its first calendar in 1981 featuring the artwork of campus residents. Since then, the program has expanded to include a juried art competition open to all seniors age 65 and older.

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 Cheryl Chavez, 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 Lawrence community.”

The Art is Ageless exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 15 - April 4 and feature works from local artists. The public is welcome to visit the Lawrence Arts Center 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, Lawrence Presbyterian Manor will honor local senior artists during a reception from 5 - 6:30 p.m. March 24. This reception is for the artists only and is not open to the general public. RSVP to Christie Patrick at Lawrence Presbyterian Manor will be required. Call 785-841-4262 or email cpatrick@pmma.org.
