Four local artists among Art is Ageless® masterpiece level winners

Four winning artists in Rolla Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2024 Art is Ageless calendar produced by PMMA (Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America®).

“Winter Fun,” a Painting entry by DeeAnn DuCote, “Time Changes Everything,” a Mixed Media/Crafts entry by Mutz Agnes Maples, and “Starvy Creek Bluegrass Festival,” a Painting entry by Ellen Reynolds, will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.

Works by local winners are automatically entered into a masterpiece level competition with winning art from 14 other PMMA® communities. More than 190 entries were received for this year’s masterpiece competition. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar with pull-out postcards and greeting cards.

“Little Red Schoolhouse Quilt,” a Quilting entry by Mary Faulkner, will be featured on the pull-out postcards included in the 2024 calendar.

“Birds in Springtime,” a Needlework entry by Carol Jessop, will be included in the calendar’s honorable mention gallery.

“We are honored to exhibit artwork by seniors,” said Lorri Waldron, sales director.  “Art is Ageless is unique in featuring only the works of senior artists.  Our artists prove that art, in any form, is an ageless ambition.”

A copyrighted program of PMMA, Art is Ageless is open exclusively to people age 65 and older. For the competition, works must have been completed in the past five years.

PMMA’s Art is Ageless program encourages Rolla Presbyterian Manor residents and other area seniors to express their creativity through its annual competition, as well as art classes, 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.

You can meet the artists from this year’s competition during our 2024 Calendar Reveal and Signing event on November 28 from 3-5 p.m. at the community room on campus.
