Finding My Voice:

The Art and Soul of Dori Jalazo

June 2022- October 2022

 

OPENING July 22 at 5:15 at Judea Reform

 Shabbat Services will follow at 6pm

 

Dori Jalazo is a renowned mixed media artist recognized for the healing spirit of her work. Dori's paintings, sculptures, mixed media, and Judaica use  bold, expressive, and vibrant color. Her art is a vehicle to transform pain into beauty, trauma into art, and to bring healing. Interwoven throughout Dori’s work are Jewish sacred themes; she also creates works of Judaica, drawing on imagery and forms that come from Jewish ritual objects. Dori's work is in public and private collections worldwide. Dori lives in Chapel Hill, NC.

From the Artist: About My Work

“In the changing shapes our journeys take, there are times when life takes a sharp turn. Who am I now? becomes a sacred question.  A new place in life for many with children moved on. We grew up in a world not far removed from Ellis Island where families lived within blocks of each other, generations stayed close. And I thank God to be part of that again. Now I live in Chapel Hill I can see Ms. Liberty welcoming ancestors, and me. All of us tired from the Journey but excited to be here. I love the new works coming through me. Thank you for letting me share them with you in this show."

From the Artist: My Story as An Artist

"I work with an open heart to create meaning in the world, to give to the larger family of humankind. There is healing in knowing Life is a Universal Journey and each of us can start the ripples of kindness and peace. My work is in private and public collections throughout the world, including those of the late Elie Wiesel (z”l), Henry Winkler, Harry Connick Jr., Dr. Ruth, Dr. Bernie Siegel, and Joshua Malina. When speaking of my work, Henry Winkler said 'you put kindness in my Life, the art was so beautiful that the spirit jumped right out of the box.'  I welcome you to my world."

About the Rosenzweig Gallery

The Rosenzweig Gallery of Judea Reform Congregation is the only gallery in the Chapel Hill-Durham area with dedicated space for the display of Judaic art and artifacts. Judea Reform Congregation’s founding Rabbi, Efraim Michael Rosenzweig was not only the congregation’s first spiritual leader, he was also a poet, an artist, a social activist and an art collector. His personal collection of Judaic artifacts was donated to Judea Reform, and became the core of the Rosenzweig Collection. (READ THE WHOLE ROSENZWEIG GALLERY STORY . . . )

The Rosenzweig Gallery rotates every four months and includes a gallery wall for 2-D work as well as a glass display case for 3-D work and other items and artifacts.
