Here is an interesting Instagram video about the Women’s Works Show at the Old Court House!
These Kohen Hands will be available for purchase through the Springfield Art Association for the 2020 Liturgical and Sacred Art Festival in Springfield, IL, which runs from March 28th through April 25th.
This sculpture is hand carved from basswood and sits on a cherry base. It is an homage to the lost art of Eastern European Jewish woodcarving, a cultural heritage which was destroyed in the pograms and Shoah. Kohen hands are considered to be a priestly blessing in Judaism.
Please contact the gallery directly if you are interested in purchasing.
Review of the Eros and Thanatos show at Buckham Gallery.
My “Original Face” photography series will be in 3 shows this spring: On the Edge with Art League Rhode Island, Eros and Thanatos with Buckham Gallery in Flint, MI, and Women’s Works at the Old Courthouse Arts Center in Woodstock, Illinois 📸🎨
Each color in this jigsaw print is an individual piece of wood, put together like a puzzle and hand-pressed onto paper with a barren. The black lines come from a keyplate, which is a separate piece of plywood, hand carved.
