UPDATE: this event has been postponed. We'll post a new event page when we have a new date.
Topeka Presbyterian Manor will celebrate local artists April 6 – 9, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and observes the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless program.
The program offers senior artists the opportunity to share and display their artwork and reaffirms the agelessness of human creativity.
“It’s inspiring to see the beautiful pieces these seniors have created,” said Danica Loftin, sales and marketing director for the health care center. “The joy it brings to them and others is wonderful, and that’s something we want to celebrate and share with the entire Topeka community.”
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.
The Art is Ageless exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 6 – 9 in the Rotunda. The public is welcome to visit the community to view the exhibit of acrylics, oils, photography and various other mediums, by both amateur and professional artists. Winning pieces at the community level move on to a masterpiece round of judging to determine which pieces are featured in the annual calendar and note cards.
In addition to the exhibit, Topeka Presbyterian Manor will honor local senior artists during a closing reception at the community at 2 p.m. April 9.
