Art is Ageless® call for entries underway at Manor of the Plains
Manor of the Plains is seeking artists age 65 and older for is annual juried art exhibit and competition March 11 – 17, 2021.
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 2022 Art is Ageless calendar.
Due to the uncertainty created by COVID-19, Manor of the Plains plans to hold its event virtually for friends of the program on the community’s Facebook page, and to announce winners on Facebook following the event. Works will be on exhibit at the community for residents only.
Artists may choose to enter works for exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2016). There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Manor of the Plains by 5 p.m. March 5. Please contact Lisa Montoya to arrange to drop off pieces for the exhibit by calling 620-682-4059.
The Art is Ageless® program encourages Manor of the Plains 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. Manor of the Plains is a PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) community.
Local competition winners will join winners from 14 other PMMA communities to be judged at the systemwide level.
