About the Exhibit

When artist Helen Meyrowitz’s husband began suffering the early effects of Alzheimer’s disease, she began making drawings that helped her deal with a complicated mix of emotions.  Site/ing Folio communicates her confused longing for the home and studio she left behind when she and her husband moved to an assisted living facility in Massachusetts.  Wind Beneath My Wings is an emotional record of the pain she experienced when her beloved husband succumbed to his illness—a moving tribute to an enduring relationship and the healing power of art as an expression of deep feelings.  Seen together, her work is both an unflinching portrait of Alzheimer’s and a moving tribute to her husband of 60 years, Sidney Meyrowitz.

About the Artist

Artist Helen Meyrowitz holds a Masters of Arts degree from Long Island University, C.W. Post campus.  Her work appears in both private and public collections and numerous museums, including Adelphi University, the Higgins Armory Museum, the Danforth Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts, the Portland Museum of Art and others.
