|50 Plus Art Show to take place on Jan. 14 at Matt Ross Community Center|
Local artists age 50 and over can show off their artwork while enjoying refreshments and discovering other local artists during a 50 Plus Art Show being presented on Wednesday, Jan. 14, by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Now in its second year, this free event will take place beginning at 2 p.m. at the Matt Ross Community Center, 8101 Marty St., Overland Park. Come discover why your fellow artists love what they do! Entry is $5, or free if you bring an appetizer or dessert to share. A prize drawing for a free 50 Plus art class will be held during this two-hour event.
Drop off up to three pieces of your artwork, along with table easels, from 8 to 11 a.m. on the morning of the event and pick up your artwork immediately after the show.
While the JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District’s Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To see this program online at www.jcprd.com, follow the “Register for Activities” link and complete a barcode search for 26162. Printed copies of JCPRD’s Activities catalog are available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
