Topeka Presbyterian Manor Art is Ageless® exhibit, reception for senior artists cancelled
Topeka Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® exhibit had been cancelled, said Heather Pilkinton, executive director.
This year will mark the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program.
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.
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.
“At this time, our workforce efforts are focused on ensuring compliance with present and evolving mandates regarding COVID-19,” Heather said. “Due to this, Topeka Presbyterian Manor will not be participating in this year’s Art is Ageless event. We are saddened by this as sharing the work of talented artists brings joy to all. We look forward to next year’s event and hope to really engage the community with our exhibit.”
The Art is Ageless exhibit features works from local artists in a variety of mediums, including acrylics, oils, photography and various other forms, ranging from amateur to professional levels.
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.
