LAST CHANCE to see the current ORA Shalom Exhibit

Beautiful Artwork graces the showcases of Neveh Shalom in Portland Oregon!

Lovely paintings capturing faces and places are beautifully represented by painter Jan Katz.

Esther Liberman's wonderful beadwork sparkles and shines!

Diana Unterspan's felt work offers soothing colors and texture....

Eddy Shuldman expresses a midrash (stories) in her fused glass work.

Our thanks to Jan , Esther, and Eddy for coming last Friday night to talk with congregants about their work. We had some lively discussions...and the service was absolutely "rocking!" Thank you Cantor Bletstein and Klezmocracy!

Our profound thanks again to this wonderful synagogue for hosting our art work on an on-going basis.

A new exhibit goes up in February and will feature the work of three or four other ORA members.

ORA Quarterly Meeting!

I forgot to take pictures and caught this shot just before we left the gathering. It's just a few of our members listening to a brief presentation by one of our other members!

First a little business, then a demo of how we do critique groups and finally we took a speedy gallery walk - a slightly more sophisticated version of grade school "show and tell"!

Lots of ooh's and ahhh's at the sample pieces everyone brought in.

All of this choreographed by Laurie Fendel! Thanks Laurie!!!!!

Thanks also to Congregation Neveh Shalom for providing us with a meeting space.

ORA: Northwest Jewish Artists ---- a collective promoting collaboration, support, artistry, and professional development.
