On Exhibit: Under Color!

After completing a month long Artist-in-Residence at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute at Brandeis University, where I made 10 construction fence-patterned chuppahs (Jewish wedding canopies), I am very proud to say that...
... my solo show, Under Color, is now on exhibit at the Kniznick Gallery in the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis, through May 22, 2014. The Opening reception is Wednesday, April 23rd from 5 - 7 pm. Please join us if you can.
Included in the show are Fence Patterned Chuppah Series #1 - #10. This series is created with monoprinted, handstamped, handpainted, and stiffened fabric. The simple printmaking techniques bring pattern and color to the traditional chuppah.
In addition to the chuppahs, there are also a series of small paintings I created, the Tallis and Fence SeriesThese paintings are created with acrylic "skins" from photos of my grandfather's tallis (prayer shawl), that are collaged on monoprinted textures of construction fences on fabric that is stitched, painted, and mounted on 8" x 6" cradled board.
In addition to the Opening reception on Wednesday, April 23rd from 5 - 7 pm, you are also invited to the following events:
Artist’s Workshop: Wednesday, April 30, 12 - 2 pm: I will lead a workshop in printing on fabric.  Drop in at any time during the session to engage in a hands-on experience.
