Fall 2020

Upcoming Exhibit: Our Natural World 

 

Call for Congregant Artwork

(by September 11th, 2020) 

The Rosenzweig Gallery will host our first virtual art exhibit this fall with the biennial Judea Reform congregant art show. As you prepare for the High Holy Days, and reflect on the beauty of the natural world, please consider sharing your artwork with the congregation. 

WHAT: The title of the exhibit is Our Natural World and with this theme we invite representations of nature, from as close as your home or garden, to distant landscapes, and art that depicts the interconnectedness of nature and our planet. The focus can be our environment and may include abstract representations of pretty or not so pretty aspects of our wild nature. Each person’s vision of nature and beauty and its many aspects are all expressions of God’s creation and each artist has a different view and  just as each of us has a different relationship to God.

WHO: Any member of our congregation, high school age or older can participate. We welcome all 2-D and 3-D media (painting, drawing, photography, collage, assemblage, mixed media, fiber, textile, sculpture, clay, metal, jewelry, wood, embroidery, sewing and knitting and other crafts). The artwork you submit does not have to be new or recent, and artwork that appeared in Art in Quarantine series is eligible. Each congregant may submit photographs of two items to be included in the virtual show. The deadline for submissions is on Friday, September 11 at 4:00pm. 

DIGITAL PHOTO OF YOUR WORK: Since this exhibit is virtual, and will be presented online as a digital slideshow, you will need to photograph your artwork. The best way to do this is using natural light on a overcast day and centering your art on a wall or solid neutral color backdrop like a table cloth. Barbara Silver, the Chair of Judea Reform's Arts & Acquisitions Committee and the Rosenzweig Gallery, recommends this Ultimate Guide to Product Photography for tips on how to photograph your 2-D and 3-D artwork using a smart phone or digital camera.

To request a submission form please email Juliet at jjensen@judeareform.org.

For questions about the exhibit please contact Barbara Silver at barbara@silver.name.

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.
