One of the winning artists in Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2017 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.

“Woods in Winter Light,” a painting by Jean Stockton, will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.

In addition, “Two Geriatric Gents,” a sculpture by Dr. Steve Swaim, will be featured on one of the Art is Ageless birthday cards.

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.

“Each year, the judges have a more difficult time,” said Tara Clawson, marketing director. “With so many entries, the diversity is exciting and the talent represented in the exhibit is exceptional.”

Art is Ageless, open 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.
