Manor of the Plains announces Art is Ageless® winners

Manor of the Plains is excited to announce the winners of its recent Art is Ageless® juried competition and exhibit.

“We’re honored that local seniors allowed us to exhibit and judge their wonderful works,” said Amber Long, life enrichment assistant. “Art is Ageless is unique because it only features the works of artists who are 65 and over. Our artists prove it’s never too late to create art, in any form.

Local competition winners will join winners from 14 other PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®) senior living communities to be judged at the masterpiece level. Winning entries at the masterpiece level are selected for publication in PMMA’s annual Art is Ageless calendar and note cards.

Art is Ageless is a copyrighted program of PMMA®.  For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years. The program encourages Manor of the Plains residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its annual competition.
