Olitsky Art Gallery - Current Installation Details

 

The Quilts of Naomi Sussman z'l: December 14, 2018 - January 9, 2019

The Olitsky Gallery is thrilled to present an exciting quilt display of  longtime Beth Or congregant, Naomi Sussman z'l. Naomi sadly passed away in 2018 at age 63. Her husband Marc and her children Sam and Rachel put together this exhibit in her honor.

Her vivacious spirit and upbeat personality touched all who knew her. In 2003, Naomi started designing quilts. She spent countless hours planning and creating beautiful and colorful quilts that express her quirky love of color and her creative talent. 

Naomi earned from Salus University a Masters in Low Vision Rehabilitation and a certificate in Orientation and Mobility that is focused on assisting the blind. Proceeds from the exhibit will support the Salus University scholarship fund to support students of Low Vision Rehabilitation.

The Artwork of our Religious Schoo9l 6th Grade Students: February 2019

Our 6th grade students have been studying the meaning of prayers and the're learning about different ways artists have presented their thoughts about prayer. The students have learned about color, symbols, layout, and other artistic ideas, and have identified a prayer that has special significance for them. Then using writing, drawing, collage, photography, found-art, or other techniques, students have createdmeaningful expressions of their own connections to prayer, complete with a written explanation for why they made the choices that they did.
