Sara Harwin: Illuminated Letters

Thought-provoking work by Portland artist Sara Harwin will be featured in an exhibit at Oregon Jewish Museum, entitled "Illuminated Letters: Threads of Connection."  The exhibit will run from February 6 through April 20, 2014. 

The work draws upon the ancient tradition of illuminated manuscripts, and encompasses large panels and hanging mobiles that use strong jolts of color, sacred imagery, pattern and movement to achieve an innovative blend of visual and textual commentary on Jewish life and thought. Sara utilizes diverse techniques, including acrylic painting, paper cuts, mixed media, and fiber art. Illuminated Letters will be shown with an exhibit of illuminated manuscripts borrowed from local collectors.

Sara is a special friend of ORA, having helped launch us and offer direction in our early days. We are delighted to see this impressive project of hers come to fruition, and strongly encourage you to experience it!
