Newton Presbyterian Manor has issued a call for entries for the Art is Ageless® juried exhibit to be held March 12 to 27, 2015. 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 2016 Art is Ageless calendar. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Presbyterian Manor by March 6, 2015.
The Art is Ageless Program encourages Newton 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.
Having a creative outlet benefits the mind, body and spirit.
“The exhibit and competition always draw a wide array of impressive artwork from talented seniors,” said Marketing Director Noelle Dickinson. “We’re expecting this to be another great year for creativity and variety of works on exhibit.”
Local competition winners will join winners from 17 other Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America communities to be judged at the systemwide level.
Entry forms and information can be picked up at Newton Presbyterian Manor, 1200 E. Seventh, or by contacting Dickinson at 316-283-5400 or [email protected] Or go online to ArtIsAgeless.org to view rules, download an entry form or enter online.
Artists may choose to enter the exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2010). There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional.
