Six winning artists in Farmington Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition—including one artist who won “Best in Show-Professional”—will be featured in the 2019 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.
Ste. Genevieve resident Anita Alsup placed Best in Show at the professional level for her painting “Grateful.” This piece, along with “Anticipation,” a painting by Vada Galvan, “Serenity,” a painting by Janet Kraus, “Two Red Apples,” a drawing by Barbara Stanfield, “Grandpa and his Granddaughters Feeding the Horses,” a drawing by Juanita Rapp Wyman and “Bouquet of Flowers,” a mixed media by June Yoder will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.
In addition, “Train,” a mixed media piece by Carl Hinds and “Christmas Winter Wonderland,” a painting in the Christmas category by Lucille Butchart will be featured on one of the Art is Ageless greeting cards.
Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 16 other PMMA communities. More than 180 entries were received for this year’s masterpiece competition. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar and greeting cards.
“We are inspired by the talent in our senior community and are thrilled we have the opportunity to share it and inspire others through the Art is Ageless calendar and greeting cards,” said Anne Allen, director of marketing and development, Farmington Presbyterian Manor.
Art is Ageless, open exclusively to people age 65 and older, is a copyrighted program of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America. For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years.
Residents and friends of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America’s Art is Ageless program are proving that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.
