Several winning artists in Newton Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2018 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.

“Wire Tree,” a sculpture by Lois Hamilton; and “Pressed Flower Notecards,” mixed media by Carol M. Friesen will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.

In addition, “The Pianist,” a painting by Valera Adams; and “Marigold Delight,” a painting by Constance Gehring, will be featured on notecards.

Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 16 other PMMA communities. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar and notecards.

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.

The Art is Ageless program encourages Newton Presbyterian Manor residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its annual competition, as well as art classes, musical and dramatic events, 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. Residents and friends of the Art is Ageless program are proving that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.
