Art is Ageless Clay Center Presbyterian Manor

By Quinn O’Hara

The Presbyterian Manor in Clay Center has been exhibiting their residents’ Art is Ageless competition entries.

Art is Ageless is a program organized by the Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America to highlight and encourage individuals aged 65 and older to create art and be creative. 

The Clay Center Presbyterian Manor’s display will be set up until Friday, April 12. Artworks at the display include several quilts, a haunted house made of cardboard, paintings, and more.

Each artwork displayed is that of a current or recently passed resident at the Manor, said Amy Altwegg, the Clay Center Presbyterian Manor’s Executive Director. She said the program has given residents confidence in their works and encouragement to continue creating.

From here, the artworks will be judged and the winning entries will be taken to be judged against other Presbyterian Manors at the competition in Wichita. Winners of that competition will have the opportunity to have their art featured in a yearly calendar and post cards.
