Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America announces Art is Ageless winners

Art is AgelessPresbyterian Manors of Mid-America has announced the winners of its annual, systemwide Art is Ageless® competition, which features entries by artists age 65 and older throughout Kansas and Missouri.

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. Artists not interested in competition were invited to enter the Art is Ageless exhibit only.
