Presbyterian Manor Art is Ageless® exhibit features senior artists
Local senior artists will be celebrated March 15 through April 4 at Lawrence Arts Center, 940 New Hampshire Street, as the community continues to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program with the annual exhibit and reception.
The Art is Ageless exhibit will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday – Sunday and feature works from local artists. The public is welcome to visit Lawrence Arts Center to view the exhibit of acrylics, oils, photography and various other mediums, ranging from amateur to professional levels.
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 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.
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 the local senior artists who entered artwork in the exhibit during a private reception from 5 – 6:30 p.m. March 24.
