Momentous Art Collaborative

It is with great pride and excitement, that Texas Jewish Arts Association joins creative forces with Texas Sculpture Association to present a mixed media show entitled:
Resolution: Peace and Unity - Valuing Our Differences; Strengthening Our Understanding and Acceptance of Others”.
The idea for this show came after the horrific Pittsburg Synagogue shooting. It was felt that, as artists, we needed to speak out on peace and unity through our art.
As Jews, and as human beings, we are tasked with Tikkun Olam, or “Repairing the World”. As artists, we can speak out, and promote thoughtfulness, through our individual mediums and styles.
We were challenged to consider what represents peace, what represents inclusiveness, what ills or wrongs do we see in the world that need attention and repair? We were given the opportunity to use our art - in our own various mediums and styles- to speak of something that is so important today.
The show was juried by artist Celia Eberly. She had the task of selecting and curating the show from 61 pieces submitted by 35 artists.
The show will take place at The Eisemann Center, Richardson, with the Show Reception on Sunday, January 19th, 3.30 - 5.30 p.m. The show will run January 2 - 26, 2020.
We will have the privilege of hearing from Rabbi Elana Zelony of Congregation Beth Torah who will speak on the show theme.
The Reception will also include performances by our own TJAA Music and Dance Division Chairs: Sarah Price and Suki John.
The program will feature two musical works by members of the Israeli Composers League: "Hassidie Duets" for Violin and Viola by Dr. Max Stern and "Winters and Afterthought" for string trio and piano by Israeli composer, Ayala Asherov. Musicians are Sarah Price, Monica Idasiak, Benjamin Katzen, and Lauren Koszyk.
Dance performance to the music “Winters”; and an improvisation. Dancers are Ally Elliot, Terrance Carson, Rose Kotopka, Allie Zenobia Shives and Suki John.
