April 26th - April 28th
10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Local senior artists will be celebrated April 26 through 28 at Farmington Presbyterian Manor, 500 Cayce St., as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit.
The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, but may be restricted to residents-only on site and posted to the community Facebook page, Facebook.com/FarmingtonPresbyterianManor, for friends of the program depending on the COVID-19 situation. Winners will be announced at 2 p.m. April 28 during an on-site reception with winners announced on Facebook.
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.
“It’s inspiring to see the beautiful pieces these seniors have created,” said Keely Jameson, marketing director. “The joy it brings to them and others is wonderful, and that’s something we want to celebrate and share with the entire Farmington 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 feature works from local artists. Plans remain flexible due to COVID-19. Works of art include acrylics, oils, photography and various other mediums, 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.
