Art is Ageless® winners announced

[caption id="attachment_6492" align="aligncenter" width="747"] ‘Serenity’ by Janet Kraus: “Dawn is a magical time of day,” said Janet Kraus. “It is so quiet, the air smells so fresh and there is almost nothing moving. Then in flies a flock of crows, breaking the silence before settling in on fence posts. Then they, too, become quiet, waiting for the day to start.”[/caption]

The results of the Art is Ageless® juried competition are in, and it is evident that Farmington Presbyterian Manor and the surrounding community are full of talented and artistic seniors.

“We are honored to exhibit artwork by seniors,” said Anne Allen, director of marketing and development. “Art is Ageless is unique in featuring only the works of artists age 65 and older. Our artists prove that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.”

Local competition winners will join winners from 16 other Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America 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 on note cards.
