Local senior artists will be celebrated March 13 through 27 at Wichita Presbyterian Manor, 4700 W. 13th Street, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and observes the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program. 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 Amy Watson, life enrichment director. “The joy it brings to them and others is wonderful, and that’s something we want to celebrate and share with the entire Wichita 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 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily March 13 through 27 and feature works from local artists. The public is welcome to visit the community to view the exhibit of 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. In addition to the exhibit, Wichita Presbyterian Manor will honor local senior artists during a reception and final exhibit at the community from 4 to 6 p.m. March 27.
