With All Her Heart

Sharon Segal has an exhibit of her latest paintings at her Doctor's office. It's a natural fit, because the paintings are mostly hearts, and this doctor is a cardiologist!

Sharon has spent a lot of time exploring the beauty of the shape we call a heart, and cleverly seques it into other related shapes as well. At first glance, it looks like a bunch of happy hearts, but when you take the time, you see deeper meanings imparted through color, position, and dark and light.

This special exhibit graces the walls of Portland Preventative Cardiology, at 2100 Southwest Camelot Court. If you're in the area, stop in and take a peek. It'll do your heart good!

ORA Exhibits All Year Long!!

Following the success of our recent exhibit at Congregation Neveh Shalom, ORA artists will be featured in a permanent, rotating series of exhibits there, starting in January.The first of these exhibits will feature three artists: Laura Joy Fendel, Susan Kuznitsky, and Sabina Wohlfeiler. You will see their beautiful work in the glass display cases in the foyer leading to the Sanctuary.

Every few months, we will mount a new exhibit. In April, our exhibit will feature a sampling of all of our members' art work.

Our hope is to kick off each new exhibit at Neveh Shalom's monthly First-Friday Shabbat Service. The first one will take place on Friday evening, January 7, 2011. Services begin at 6:15 pm.

Come join us in celebrating art, community, and Shabbat!
