The Boulder JCC’s walls will soon be adorned with the work of two artists who use photography to create unique artworks.
In the case of Israel Anderson, HDR photography allows the Boulder artist to capture far more of what the human eye can see and create works that are more like oil paintings. Marilyn Lande presents visual translations of photographs created and printed by the Denver artist.
The PhotoFusion show opens Saturday, December 18, at 6 pm with a wine and cheese reception at the BJCC. The free meet-the-artists reception is followed by the 7 pm screening of “Yoo-hoo, Mrs. Goldberg,” an acclaimed new documentary about Gertrude Berg.
Marilyn Lande beat Robert Rauschenberg to the Matzah Bowl when she created a six foot 3-D Matzah for the Denver JCC in 1976. She has been an artist and an active member of the Denver community as an educator, cultural arts specialist and artist for most of her adult life. She has lectured at several national conventions on art and education. The artbook “The Hagaddah Transcending Time” was runner-up 2002 for the Artbook Grant by the National Museum for Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.
Her folk art miniature works “Jewish History in Miniature” gives credence to the talent and exciting history that belongs to the Jewish people and is on permanent display at the Beth Shalom Congregation of Centennial, Colorado.
Her show at the JCC will include two series. “Ode to Jewish Artists” features art works created to honor Jewish artists from the 1500’s to today. These montage artworks were created to give life to Jewish history and culture. The artworks combined are meant to allow reflection by the viewer of his/her perspective on Jewish artists.
Inspired BY (Jewish Books that have Inspired LANDEscapes) includes photomontage works created to reflect the inspiration from Jewish books that the artist has read and been most impressed with.
