Two winning artists in Fulton Presbyterian Manor’s annual Art is Ageless® juried competition will be featured in the 2019 Art is Ageless Calendar produced by Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America.
“Dear Deer,” a painting by Ruth Horton and “After a Hard Day's Work in the Garden,” a painting by Richard McKinney will appear in the calendar when it is released this fall.
In addition, “Summer Harvest,” a painting by Rosemary Zbinden and “Orian Star Quilt,” a quilt by Alma Hoffmann will be featured in the honorable mention gallery 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 16 other PMMA communities. The winners are featured in the Art is Ageless calendar and notecards.
"Art is Ageless is a great way to encourage area artists to either pick up a new hobby or continue honing their craft," said Keri Alonzo, administrative services director. "We're always so impressed with the work produced, and we're thrilled that one of our artists will be featured in the calendar!"
