Broadlawn Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center Unveils New Diane Monet Composition, 'Look of Love' on Friday, October 30, 2009
(September 29, 2009) Gerard M. Kaiser, Vice President of Broadlawn Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center announced the official unveiling of this outstanding composition by Diane Monet, depicting a senior adult resident from Broadlawn Manor and a feline.
We are delighted to include this extraordinary composition to our Gallery of Art here at Broadlawn Manor for all to enjoy. Ms. Monet has clearly captured the strong bond of affection so many of our residents form with pets. Her rendering of our resident, Mrs. Lucille Geed and the feline, 'Violet', clearly evokes a relaxing and calming mood while allowing the viewer to feel their connection. Mr. Kaiser stated, "The importance of pet therapy and the ability of animals to bridge our loneliness, grief, fear and pain have long been established. Pet therapy has been an important component in our broad range of therapeutic activities for all our residents and patients. We are delighted to have this outstanding composition highlighting an important perspective."
An exclusive showing of 'Look of Love' will be held at Broadlawn Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center on Friday, October 30, 2009 at 1:15pm in the main lobby. Distinguished guests include Ms. Diane Monet, Artist, Mrs. Lucille Geed, her family and friends, patrons of this composition, Dr. Donald F. Smith, Professor of Surgery at Cornell University and Dennis Dunne, Sr., Nassau County Legislator as well as Ellen McVeety, Councilwoman for the Town of Babylon and Mr. and Mrs. William Edwards advocates for Paws for People. Following the unveiling, honored guests will be invited for lunch.
