You are invited to our Exhibition Opening on Tuesday, October 13th 2015, 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

The selected works on display include photography by Helène Aylon, Shay Arick (Israel), Leah Caroline, Larry Frankel, Ken Goldman (Israel), Gil Lavi (Israel), Paul R. Solomon; mixed media by Cynthia Beth Rubin; paintings by Tobi Kahn and Shira Toren; and sculptural and site-specific installations by Asherah Cinnamon, Hila Amram, Jackie Brookner, Stephanie Cohen, Filipe Cortez (Portugal), Susan Hoffman Fishman and Elena Kalman, Deanna Sirlin, Elisa Pritzker (Argentina), and Renata Stein.

Presented by Art Kibbutz, co-sponsored by the Jewish Art Salon and the Manny Cantor Center, this exhibition highlights the complex relationship artists’ have with the changing environment and to Jewish culture. Each artist, as an observer and participant, has an individual experience with their surrounding ecological system - Earth, Judaism, or both. These experiences are showcased through a wide survey of media – from unconditional raw materials, like dirt, branches, and bones, to innovative technology, like Augmented Reality.
