Living Well Assisted Living at Home Receives Artwork for Display
Date:11/7/2013

Tiburon, CA (PRWEB) November 07, 2013

Living Well Assisted Living at Home has received a generous donation from Marianne Gontarz York, a clinical social worker and visual gerontologist. They have been given The Swan Lady, a multimedia art piece by Nancy Renfro to display at their headquarters in Tiburon, CA.

The Swan Lady (1991) is generally regarded as one of the best creations by the artist. It stands 60 feet by 72 feet and has been presented in numerous exhibitions at the national level. It was featured on the cover of the magazine Avanti in 1993 and was published as a poster in the same year. It depicts a sassy and outgoing elderly woman who does not have a problem showing what living well and being well means. She encourages elderly women to be colorful and to be themselves.

Living Well CEO and President Dr. Doris Bersing said, “We like to celebrate old age and try to counteract ageism in our culture.”

Nancy Renfro, the artist of The Swan Lady, has exhibited her work in galleries in Austin, Atlanta, Los Angeles and other cities. Her artwork often includes large bold forms and a theatrical manner and was strongly influenced by her architectural and performance backgrounds. She has cited Honore Daumier as an influence, calling him one of the greatest character inventors.
