Event Description


The Osher Marin JCC is pleased to present The Shabbat Project, a new exhibition by the New York-based fiber artist, Laurie Wohl. Meet the artist at the opening reception on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 7-9 pm and hear her speak on this powerful project.
Artist\\\'s Statement on "The Shabbat Project":
Music has been a central inspiration in my life and work - and nowhere more so than for The Shabbat Project. The project has been particularly inspired by the beautiful Kabbalat Shabbat service welcoming the Sabbath Stephen Wise Free Synagogue (New York City), led by Cantor Daniel Singer. The service consists of ancient prayers, psalms, niggunim and piyyutim.
The pieces in The Shabbat Project interpret and embed the Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat morning prayers that have had special resonance for me over the years, through the music that carries them. A soundscape* (on prepared iPods) accompanies the project, so that the viewer can listen to melodies - both ancient and contemporary - that interpret these prayers.
The exhibit also includes pieces from my On Wings of Prayer series, including "Ne\\\'ilah" and four pieces related to the beautiful water imagery found in many of the Psalms and other Biblical texts.
*Soundscape iPods can be borrowed at the Welcome Center.
Presented by The Taube Center for Jewish Peoplehood at the Osher Marin JCC.
Fee: $0.00
