Sloan's Spot: Art is Ageless through my eyes
Each year the Art is Ageless event is held for those 65 years and older at Presbyterian Manor. Not only is it an awesome opportunity for our seniors, but it is also a great opportunity for our community and the surrounding area. Yearly, a vast amount of people stop in to view the exhibit throughout the week. Many community and family members marvel on and on about the work that our locals have created.
I am so glad the event turned out to be such a success. It made all the hard work worth it for many reasons. Mostly, I loved seeing the artists' faces and hearing their voices when they realized they had placed competitively. In addition, our artists, family members and community members were beyond thankful to Presbyterian Manor for holding this event for our community ... another reason to make next year's Art Is Ageless event that much better.
We can't have this wonderful event without all of our talented, amazing artists. I want to thank everyone for entering the competition, as well as everyone who attended the reception. It was a beautiful, rewarding evening for all involved. I am so happy to have built some solid relationships with the artists and community members and can't wait to see them grow. I am ready for next year and all the magnificent art pieces that will be entered.
