Walnut Hills Retirement Community is seeking entries for its annual art show for older adults, to be held in Walnut Creek Aug. 23-24.

The 2024 “Creativity Is Timeless” contest is open to amateur artists age 55 or older who reside in Holmes County or within a 2-mile radius of the county line including the Baltic, Sugarcreek, Fredericksburg, Loudonville, Dundee and Ragersville areas.

Artists may submit up to three entries, and there is no entry fee. All art must have been completed when the artist was age 55 or older. The art categories are paintings and drawings, photography, quilts and wall hangings, other soft crafts such as crochet or knitting, woodworking, other hard crafts such as stained glass or ceramics, and miscellaneous such as jewelry or scrapbooking.

Awards will be presented in each category, and there will be awards for Best of Show and People’s Choice.

“We encourage anyone over 55 who enjoys creating to participate,” said Paula S. Miller, community relations director. “If you create with wood, yarn, paint, clay, thread or something out of the ordinary, we want you to share your artwork.”

Over the 13 years Walnut Hills has hosted the “Creativity Is Timeless” exhibit, more than 900 pieces of artwork have been displayed by more than 170 artists over the age of 55.

Entry forms must be submitted by Friday, Aug. 9. The entry forms are available at Walnut Hills on Olde Pump Street in Walnut Creek, the Garaway Senior Center in Sugarcreek and the Darb Snyder Senior Center in Millersburg. Entry forms also can be downloaded from the Walnut Hills Facebook page or website at www.walnuthillsliving.org.
