Isaac Bashevis Singer and His Artists
January 12 – February 16, 2014
Isaac Bashevis Singer (1902–1991), recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1978 and a towering figure among modern Yiddish writers in America, wrote his entire oeuvre of 86 books and numerous stories, many steeped in his Jewish and Polish heritage, in Yiddish. His stories have been translated into English and over 30 have been illustrated. Isaac Bashevis Singer and His Artists features illustrations by 14 artists including: many recipients of the Caldecott Medal, Newbery Award, Pulitzer Prize, and the Hans Christian Andersen Medal. Based on his keen observations and genuine love of pious, superstitious, earthy, heroic, resourceful, and tragic figures, his works blur the lines between folk tales and legends. The exhibit reveals layers of storytelling using photography, painting, graphic design, wood-block prints and more.
Evolution Of The Kibbutz
By The Israeli Quilters’ Association
February 22 – April 13, 2014
The first settlements in Israel were Kibbutzim. This exhibition brings the outstanding work of 21 quilt artists who tell the story of 100 years of Kibbutz life in Israel, from 1910-2010. The quilts demonstrate the ability of Israeli society to welcome global influences, which have positively impacted many sectors of Israeli civic life. In this tribute to the Zionism movement and Israel, each quilter brings her own interpretation to the meaning of the kibbutz by using different combinations of fabrics and styles, from traditional to contemporary. The quilts emphasize the fields of produce that are so closely associated with the kibbutz. Some quilts reflect the harsher side of kibbutz life, like the one by Bella Kaplan, who had a difficult time adapting to the way of life. Her quilt depicts children sleeping in the children’s house, away from their parents. Like Bella Kaplan, many quilt artists experienced kibbutz life first-hand. The people, the places and the emotions are documented in the fabric and stitches. Through a marriage of art and craft, these quilts bear vivid testimony to 100 years of kibbutz life. With this show, the Israeli Quilters Association formally represent Israel in an international exhibition for the first time.
