Today through Sunday at the National Jewish Retreat
, Creative Soul and the Jewish Learning Institute is having an international art exihibit, curated by Rabbi Yitchock Moully, at the Hilton of Alexandria. Three of my pieces were chosen because they reflect the theme of Joy: Lady Wisdom
, and Tangled Web
All three are printed on metal for dramatic effect.
I have been increasingly interested in creating Jewish and Biblical art
. Lady Wisdom
derives from the Book of Proverbs; Keter
is an aspect of Kabbalah and Tangled Web
was chosen by the curator as a third piece, reflecting the interconnections of joy throughout the cosmos.
This marks my second Jewish art show, the first being the "Freedom Lived, Freedom Imagined" art show in Saint Louis., where I exhibited the piece, Miriam's Well.
It is also the second time I have been in a group show without being able to be there in person myself. It is nice that I am able to participate in shows all over. Alexandria, where this show is taking place is very close to were I grew up, which is also nice.
If you are attending the National Jewish Retreat, I hope you have to see my work and the work of all the other artists and enjoy it!
