Four local artists among Art is Ageless® masterpiece level winners
Four winning artists in the Farmington Presbyterian Manor annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2024 Art is Ageless calendar produced by PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®).
“Barn that Oscar Built,” a Drawing entry by Juanita Rapp Wyman, will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.
Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 14 other PMMA® communities. More than 190 entries were received for this year’s masterpiece competition. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar with pull-out postcards and greeting cards.
“Spring Song for the Dogwood,” a Painting entry by Jeanette Bishop, “Harvest Time,” a Painting entry by Vada Galvan, and “Biff: Tree Climber,” a Drawing entry by Dorothy Weston, will be featured on the pull-out postcards included in the 2024 calendar.
“Plums,” a Painting entry by Betty Chapman, “Still Life with Pineapple,” a Mixed Media/Crafts entry by Victoria Gallagher Cummings, “Christmas Pageant,” a Christmas entry by DeeAnne Hansen, and “Christmas Snow in Switzerland,” a Drawing entry by Juanita Rapp Wyman, will be featured on Art is Ageless greeting cards.
“We are honored to exhibit artwork by seniors,” said Keely Jameson, marketing director. “Art is Ageless is unique in featuring only the works of senior artists. Our artists prove that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.”
A copyrighted program of PMMA, Art is Ageless is open exclusively to people aged 65 and older. For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years.
PMMA’s Art is Ageless program encourages Farmington Presbyterian Manor residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its annual competition, as well as art classes, educational opportunities, and current events discussions throughout the year.
Started in 1980, Art is Ageless is an extension of PMMA’s wellness programs, which focus on mental, physical, social, and spiritual health.
