Cedarbrook Nursing Home officials unveiled a painting of one of its original building Tuesday that was created and donated by the Lehigh Valley Decorative Painters.
The painting, which measures 36 inches by 43 inches, will hang in the foyer. It is one of five works the group of artists will paint and donate to Cedarbrook that depict the county nursing home in its early days when it was a working farm.
The Lehigh Valley Decorative Painters, formed in 1990, is a chapter of The National Society of Decorative Painters. The artists who contributed to the painting are: Chairperson Eddiejo Bunker; President Betty Henry; Bernice Rauch; Jean Szabo and Diane Peters. Others who helped were Sylvia Kressley, Tina Antonelli, Liz Vrana and Rosalie Williams.
The chapter meets the second Friday of each month at Faith UCC. Meetings are open to the public. Some of their functions include a paint-in in the spring and an art auction held the first Sunday in November.
