Three winning artists in Aberdeen Village’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2018 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid- America.
“Here’s Looking at You,” a drawing by Shirley Dixon, and “Striking,” a drawing by Carol Rondinelli, will both appear in the calendar when it is released this fall, as well as “Harvest,” a hand-stitched quilt by Carolyn Habighorst.
In addition, “Bouquet of Magnolias,” a needlework by Twila Butts, will be featured on one of the Art is Ageless greeting 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.
“We continue to be amazed at the quality of artwork displayed every year at our Art is Ageless event, and we’re beyond thrilled that three of our artists will be featured in the calendar, and one will be featured on a notecard,” said Chrissie Ammann, director of sales and marketing.
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.
Art is Ageless 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.
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.
