JEWISH ARTISTS’ LABORATORY EXHIBIT
June 12 – July 20, 2014
The Jewish Artists’ Laboratory is an arts initiative through the Sabes JCC featuring 25 local artists exploring the theme of Light through unconventional study and creative hands-on sessions. The Laboratory, in its second year, meets twice monthly, promoting ongoing dialogue and providing a platform for artwork through its many stages.
Together artists of varying artistic media and connections to Judaism explore how the theme of Light is relevant to their work, as individuals, and to the community. This initiative will culminate in an exhibition and presentation.
Made possible through a generous grant from The Covenant Foundation, The Sabes Jewish Community Center, Minneapolis, along with The Harry & Rose Samson Jewish Community Center, Milwaukee, and University of Wisconsin Hillel, Madison, Wisconsin have collaborated to create this unique artistic initiative.
This year’s participating artists include: Tuvia Abramson, Susan Armington, Carolyn Light Bell, Joel Carter, Toni Dachis, Danny Ettedgui, Suzanne Fenton, Leah Golberstein, Bette Globus Goodman, Jon Gross, Rani Halpern, David Harris, Bonnie Heller, Ann Ginsburgh Hofkin, Sylvia Horwitz, Anita Konikoff, Alison Morse, Diane Pecoraro, Paula Leiter Pergament, Kris Prince, Louise Ribnick, Phil Rosenbloom, Susan Weinberg, and Rochelle Woldorsky.
