Trees of Life

January 4, 2019 - January 27, 2019

Event Navigation

Trees of Life is a small group show featuring installation, paintings, photographs, sculpture and works on paper by Cynthia Back, Susan Benarcik, FrankDePietro, Linda Dubin Garfield and Amie Potsic.

A portion of sales will go to Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA in memory of the 11 members massacred on October 27, 2018.

*They observe Tu B’ Shevat by eating fruit, particularly from the kinds that are singled out in the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land- grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. On this day they remember that “Man is a tree of the field” (Deuteronomy 20: 19) and reflect on the lessons they can derive from their botanical analogue.
