Virtual Art Opening Rosenzweig Gallery

Our Natural World

Monday, December 7 at 7:00pm

An evening of art, beauty, and Jewish history

REGISTER HERE

Spend an hour learning from our Judea Reform artists about their artwork depicting nature in the Rosenzweig Gallery’s fall exhibit; listen to them talk about the influence of nature and Judaism on their creative process in Our Natural World.

Meet not only the artists but also the leaders of the Arts & Acquisition Committee, Jodi Preminger, Barbara Silver, and guest historians, Leonard Rogoff (author of Down Home: Jewish Life in North Carolina) and Henry Greene (former director of the Jewish Heritage Foundation of NC), to learn about the legacy of Rabbi Efraim Rosenzweig (Judea Reform's inaugural rabbi) and his commitment and passion for the art and Jewish heritage.

Bring your beverage of choice and join us for an engaging evening of art, nature, and our Jewish history. 

Advance registration is required to attend this event.

The Rosenzweig Gallery at Judea Reform Congregation welcomes you to our 2020/5781 virtual congregant art show; VIEW the show below.

 

 

Our Natural World

As we enter the new year, 5781, we invite you to enjoy images created by 27 congregants. We hope you will be challenged and inspired by this art which invites representations of our surroundings from as close as your home kitchen table or backyard to distant landscapes. Each person’s vision of nature and beauty and its many aspects are all expressions of God’s creation. Each artist has a different view just as each of us has a different relationship to God.

Stay tuned for information about the upcoming virtual opening for the show and a chance to hear from some of our amazing artists.

For more information, or to purchase art that is for sale, contact contact Barbara Silver or email Juliet at jjensen@judeareform.org.

On December 7, we premiered a video presentation of a conversation between several of the artists and the curators of this exhibit. We include a version of it, below. NOTE: The first half a minute or so is silent.

 

Making Art in Quarantine

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Judea Reform staff has been asking congregants to keep us informed of artwork they are making as a way to bring light into this dark time.  Thanks to all the Judea congregants who shared their vision, beauty, humor, and ingenuity.  Judea Reform's Arts & Acquisitions Committee is now planning a Fall 2020 Virtual Art Show (see description, theme, and information above).

If you have art to share, we want to see it. Please send to jjensen@judeareform.org. 

 

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.
