Art is Ageless, Greystone’s inaugural resident art competition, will be featured at The Event next month.  All Greystone-affiliated CCRCs were encouraged to participate in this initiative designed to promote healthy aging, spark creativity and highlight the cognitive abilities of our residents through the levels of care and show that no matter their age seniors can still create beautiful pieces of art. The competition was open to residents of independent living, skilled nursing, assisted living and memory support.  Over 80 entries from more than 8 communities were received.

“The variety and level of skill represented by the entries we received is remarkable!” Sue Plasterr, Corporate Vice President – Greystone Management, stated. “The panel of judges certainly had their work cut out for them.”

A panel of senior living experts, artists, designers and art professors carefully reviewed each entry based on artist’s technique, subject matter and overall composition to choose finalists.  Six pieces, 3 from independent living and 3 from healthcare, were ultimately selected and will be displayed at The Greystone Event in Irving, Texas July 8-10. First, second and third places will be awarded in each category and one overall winner will also be recognized.
