Six local artists among Art is Ageless® masterpiece level winners
Six winning artists in Salina Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2024 Art is Ageless calendar produced by PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®).
“Steampunk Airship #2,” a Sculpture/3-D entry by Craig Boyers, “Kansas Beauty,” a Painting entry by Barb Culley, “Let Us Give Thanks,” a Needlework entry by Phyllis Johnson, and “Evening Safari,” a Painting entry by Sharon Root, will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.
Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 14 other PMMA® communities. More than 190 entries were received for this year’s masterpiece competition.
“Could I Have This Dance,” a Sculpture/3-D entry by Glenn Knak, and “Peace on Earth,” a Christmas entry by Stan Lauer, will be featured on the pull-out postcards included in the 2024 calendar.
“365 Challenge,” a Quilting entry by Jean Hamilton, and “Scenic Colorado Train,” a Photography entry by Sue Holmgren, will be included in the calendar’s honorable mention gallery.
“Blooming Garden,” a Quilting entry by Kristy Yenkey, will be featured on Art is Ageless greeting cards.
“We are honored to exhibit artwork by seniors,” said Cathy Boos, sales director. “Art is Ageless is unique in featuring only the works of senior artists. Our artists prove that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.”
A copyrighted program of PMMA, Art is Ageless is open exclusively to people age 65 and older.
The community will host its next annual Art is Ageless exhibit March 7 – 9, 2024, Homewood Suites by Hilton, downtown Salina, Kan.
