Aberdeen Village has issued a call for entries for the Art is Ageless® juried exhibit to be held March 27 – April 30, 2020. Entries of artistic works will be accepted from any area artist who is 65 years of age or older to exhibit and/or compete for an opportunity to be featured in the 40th anniversary Art is Ageless calendar in 2021.
Artists may choose to enter the exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2015). There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Aberdeen Village by March 20.
The Art is Ageless® program encourages Aberdeen Village 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. Aberdeen Village is a PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America) community.
Local competition winners will join winners from 15 other PMMA communities to be judged at the systemwide level.
Entry forms and information can be picked up at Aberdeen Village, 17500 West 119th Street, Olathe, or by contacting Sean Roark at 913-599-6100 or [email protected] Or go online to ArtIsAgeless.org to view rules, download an entry form or enter online.
Local senior artists will be celebrated March 27 through April 30 at Aberdeen Village, 17500 W. 119th St., Olathe, 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 Aberdeen Village’s parent company, 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 Sean Roark, marketing director at Aberdeen Village. “The joy it brings to them and others is wonderful, and that’s something we want to celebrate and share with the entire Olathe 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 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 27 through April 30 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, Aberdeen Village will honor local senior artists during a reception at the community at 3 p.m. May 1.

Change is constant -- but that doesn't make it any easier. We all know any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by its share of difficulties. But if short-term discomfort is standing between you and extended happiness, it may be time to change your perspective on change at a free event hosted by Aberdeen Village Tuesday, March 10. Counselor, coach and private-practice psychotherapist Jeffrey L. Wilson will take an in-depth look at the psychology behind change. You'll learn about the types of change and how to cope with each. We'll also delve into the cost of change and discuss methods to demystify it. Join us for a delicious complementary lunch prepared by Aberdeen Village's amazing dining team before the presentation. Seating is extremely limited. Call Stephanie Oehlert at 913-624-1086 or email [email protected] by no later than Thursday, March 26 to reserve your place. The Psychology of Change is part of Aberdeen Village's Just Ask lifelong learning program featuring speakers and topics of interest to seniors and their adult children.
