Koslowe Gallery Tour of Exhibit Across the Divides

The Koslowe Gallery is delighted to join a Rhythm and Ruach, Shabbat Under the Stars evening with Shabbat dinner and a Gallery tour on  Friday evening, September 8th, of this fall’s gallery exhibition:

 

Across Divides: Borders and Boundaries in Contemporary Art.  

Angela Strassheim, Saugy Praying, 2008, 24” x 30”

 

The story of the Jewish people is filled with messages of division, both from

society at-large and  within ourselves. At times this separation is deliberate and at other times it has been imposed. Borders and boundaries in Jewish history is a story that transcends not only our people, but many peoples, and resonates in today’s most compelling stories also where there are efforts to wall off and attempts to bridge differences. Through a variety of art forms the artists in the exhibition explore, in the words of guest curator Reba Wulkan, “moral and spiritual challenges, gender identities, and themes of national origins, geo-politics, tolerance, and other concerns.”

 

Some engage with ideas of spatial boundaries while others explore personal divides that define Jewish identity, ethnicity, prayer, garb, family, geographical borders, and physical or conceptual walls. Painters, photographers and sculptors, such as David Moss, Andi Arnovitz, Tova Beck-Friedman, Ken Goldman, Siona Benjamin, Pavel Wolberg, Angela Srassheim and Ahuva Winslow, are represented.

 

Join us for this event, as well as a formal gallery opening program on Thursday evening, October 19th, 2017, featuring Reba Wulkan. The exhibition will be on view through December 2017.
