Artist-in-Residence: Day 8

I've finished the first of a collection of chuppahs I've been making as an Artist-in-Residence at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, at Brandeis University. This piece is a modern version of the chuppah I made for my wedding in 1982. Please note that the gray on the edges is the wall color, and is not a part of this piece.

This is a detail of what will be a 8' x 8' chuppah when it's finished in a few days. It's made with two 4' x 8' pieces of monoprinted, handstamped, and painted fabric, that will go together as one. My plan is that it be displayed overhead so gallery visitors can walk under it.

I am at Brandeis weekdays from noon - 5pm through April 11th working on site in the Kniznick Gallery. I'm creating a series of Jewish wedding canopies, or chuppot, to be displayed at an exhibition, Under Color, at the Kniznick Gallery from April 14 - May 22, 2014.

Please feel free to stop by while I'm working in the gallery, or during the exhibit, or both.
