Aberdeen Village Art is Ageless® exhibit and reception features senior artists
Local senior artists will be celebrated March 26 through April 30 at Aberdeen Village, 17500 W. 119th Street, Olathe, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and continues to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program.
Works will be on exhibit at the community for residents only. The Art is Ageless exhibit will be held virtually for friends of the program on the community’s Facebook page. Winners will be announced on Facebook.
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 Stephanie Oehlert, 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.
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. The deadline for exhibit submissions is March 19. Artists should arrange drop off of their artwork by contacting Stephanie Oehlert at 913-599-6100.
In addition to the exhibit, Aberdeen Village will honor local senior artists during a reception at the community at 3 p.m. May 3. The reception date remains flexible due to COVID-19.
