Since 1980, Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America has been proving that Art is Ageless® by hosting local art exhibits and competitions for residents and area artists. Both amateurs and professionals are encouraged to participate. Judges from the local community judge works based on composition, mastery of technique and overall creativity. Winners from the local competition advance to the “Masterpiece” level. All finalists are judged against each other by two to three judges to determine the “Best in Show” for both amateur and professional categories. Finally, the judges are asked to select 30 amateur pieces and 15 professional pieces that will be featured in the annual Art is Ageless calendar.
