Under Color Opening Reception Invitation

My solo show, Under Color, is on exhibit at the Kniznick Gallery in the Women’s Studies Research Center at Brandeis University, through May 22, 2014. The Opening reception is today, Wednesday, April 23rd from 5 - 7 pm. Please join us if you can.
The work included in the exhibit was created during my month long Artist-in-Residence at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute at Brandeis, where I made 10 construction fence-patterned chuppahs (Jewish wedding canopies).
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. 

The Opening reception is today, Wednesday, April 23rd from 5 - 7 pm. Please note that the gallery is in the Epstein Building, at 515 South Street in Waltham MA, across from the Brandeis/Roberts commuter rail station. It is not in the main part of the Brandeis campus.
