Mother And Daughter Gallery

Previously displayed in Chelsea Manhatten, Rockville Centre and Levittown, the art of mother and daughter can be found at Plainview-Old Bethpage Library for the remainder of July. Miriam Quen Cheikin, and her daughter Anita Cheikin Heiser, filled the gallery with the nature of both plants and people. Grayscale full-scale human etches from mom and flowers from daughter are just a taste of the mediums found in their exhibit.

Cheikin was an English emeritus professor at Nassau Community College, meaning she retired with the honor of keeping her title. She studied at The Art Student’s League of New York for nearly ten years, and was awarded the red dot, the highest award from the league.

Cheikin also had drawings in an exhibit at the office of the borough President of Manhattan in City Hall called “Never a Day Without a Line,” was invited to be part of an exhibit at the Grace Institute, also in New York City, and has participated numerous times in exhibits called “Postcards From the Edge” in a Chelsea gallery in Manhattan.

Heiser has 30 years experience as a professional designer and landscaper, and studied in New York and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Her watercolor painting “The Dying Tulip” was featured as a model poster for the Hofstra Flower and Garden show. Heiser participated in the “Postcards From the Edge” exhibit as well with her mother.

Plainview resident Gail Wurtzel will be leading her team, Memories of Miriam, in the Walk to Defeat ALS at Eisenhower Park later this month.

 

Wurtzel’s Mother, Miriam Hanania, also a Plainview resident, succumbed to the disease two years ago after a long struggle. The disease forced her to go from an active, vibrant person to being wheelchair-bound and dependent on others for her care. 

 

ALS or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

While everyone is subject to the trials and tribulations that life offers on a day-to-day basis, some people can use just a little bit of extra help. Luckily, there’s help with a proven track record out there for those who need it. 

 

Joe Russo of Old Bethpage heads up the Recovery International meetings held weekly at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library. These meetings extol the virtues of the self-help techniques developed by the late Dr. Abraham Low, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry as the University of Illinois Medical School.
