We’re always cooking up something interesting for members of our greater community. From art exhibitions and open house brunches to our popular Just Ask educational seminars, find out what’s happening this month.
Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor has issued a call for entries for the Art is Ageless® juried exhibit to be held April 8 - 12, 2019. Entries of artistic works will be accepted from any area artist who is 65 years of age or older to exhibit and/or compete for an opportunity to be featured in the 2020 Art is Ageless calendar.
Artists may choose to enter the exhibit only. For the competition, works are to have been completed in the past five years (since January 2015). There are nine categories, as well as designations of amateur or professional. Works to be entered for judging need to be at Presbyterian Manor by 5 p.m. April 3.
The Art is Ageless® Program encourages Presbyterian Manor 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.
Local competition winners will join winners from 16 other Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America communities to be judged at the systemwide level.
Entry forms and information can be picked up at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor, 1711 N. Fourth, Arkansas City, or by contacting Sean Page at 620-442-8700 or [email protected]. Or go online to ArtIsAgeless.org to view rules, download an entry form or enter online.
Local senior artists will be celebrated March 30 through April 3 at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor, 1711 N. Fourth, as the community hosts its annual Art is Ageless® exhibit and observes the 40th anniversary of the Art is Ageless® program. 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 Sean Page, marketing director. “The joy it brings to them and others is wonderful, and that’s something we want to celebrate and share with the entire Arkansas City 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. The Art is Ageless exhibit will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 30 through April 3 and feature works from local artists. The public is welcome to visit the community to view the exhibit of acrylics, oils, photography and various other mediums, ranging from amateur to professional levels. 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. In addition to the exhibit, Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor will honor local senior artists during a reception at the community from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. April 2.

Each year for the past 25 years Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor has organized the “Dick Metz Golf Tournament” which is named for the late golf pro Richard “Dick” C. Metz. He was a native of Arkansas City and a leading golf pro in the 1930’s and 1940’s. In his career, he won 14 professional victories and was inducted into the Kansas Golf Hall of Fame in 1991. After Metz’ death, a golf tournament was named for him in which the proceeds benefit the Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor Good Samaritan Program.
Registration forms will be available at Arkansas City Presbyterian Manor.
