Fort Scott Presbyterian Village has issued a call for entries for the Art is Ageless® juried exhibit to be held March 22 – April 2, 2021, featuring senior artists from the area.

Artists compete in nine categories, including painting, drawing, photography, quilting and sculpture and may be designated as amateur or professional. The compete rules and category listing is found online at Artists may choose to enter their works for exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2016).

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 Art is Ageless calendar in 2022.

The exhibit continues the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless program, which began with the first calendar in 1981. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Presbyterian Village by March 19. A reception honoring the winning artists is planned for 2 p.m. on April 9. Plans remain flexible due to COVID-19.

The Art is Ageless® program encourages Presbyterian Village 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.

Art is Ageless Exhibit

March 22 - April 2

Local senior artists will be celebrated March 22 through April 2 at Fort Scott Presbyterian Village, 4201 S. Horton, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and continues to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program.

Works will be on exhibit at the community for residents only. The Art is Ageless exhibit will be held virtually for friends of the program on the community’s Facebook page, Winners will be announced on Facebook.

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 Megan Brillhart, 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 Fort Scott 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.
