Fort Scott PMMA artists are 2019 Art is Ageless® masterpiece level winners
Three winning artists in Fort Scott Presbyterian Village’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2020 Art is Ageless calendar produced by PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America).
“Carpenters Bluff Bridge,” a photograph by Paul Milks (shown right), “Church on the Mountain Side,” a painting by Glenda Stevicks (shown above, left), and “Nature,” a sculpture/3-D entry by Tony Fornelli (shown below), will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall. “Bright Journey,” a fiber arts entry by Carolyn Munsell (shown above, right), will be featured on the new pull-out postcards included in the 2020 calendar.
In addition, “His Name is Jesus,” a needlework by Charlotte Kite, will be featured on the Art is Ageless greeting cards.
Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 16 other PMMA communities. More than 190 entries were received for this year’s masterpiece competition. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar with pull-out postcards and greeting cards.
Art is Ageless, open exclusively to people age 65 and older, is a copyrighted program of PMMA. For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years.
PMMA’s Art is Ageless program encourages Fort Scott 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.
Started in 1980, Art is Ageless is an extension of PMMA’s wellness programs, which focus on mental, physical, social and spiritual health. Residents and friends of PMMA’s Art is Ageless program are proving that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.
