Gurwin Artists Show Off Their Work

Art made by residents of  Gurwin Jewish ~ Fay J. Lindner Residences went on display at the Commack Public Library to mark the grand opening of the Gurwin Assisted Living Resident Art Show.

 The original artwork  ranged from still life to seascapes, produced in months-long classes led by Gurwin art therapists. The artists, from ages 79 to 96, experimented in different mediums and techniques, culminating in gallery-worthy pieces revealed at the library art show.

“We are very proud of the enriching programs led by our talented art team,” said Stuart B. Almer, president and CEO of Gurwin Healthcare System. “While some of our residents are lifelong painters, others never picked up a paint brush before coming to Gurwin. We admire their creativity and are so pleased to have their work displayed at the Commack Library.”
