“Cloaked in Light” Art Exhibit Opens at Merage Gallery

Cloaked in LightA new exhibit of paintings explores the relationship of wrapping oneself in the tallis, the Jewish sacred prayer shawl, to wrapping oneself in the majesty and splendor of G-d.

A tallis is worn during morning prayers and on other Jewish holidays. Wrapping oneself in a tallis creates a sacred space that is meant to enhance the intention and directions of one’s prayers.

“These paintings seek to explore the essence of light within the garment that serves as a symbol of G-d’s commandments and within the human body, illuminated and protected by G-d’s glory, said Ms. Feldman.

“Cloaked in Light” opens Sunday, September 22 at 2:00 p.m. with a reception and a short talk with the artist at the David and Laura Merage Foundation Art Gallery at the Merage and Allon Hillel Center, 2390 South Race Street, Denver, CO 80210.

Ms. Feldman is a Denver native and recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This is her first exhibit at Hillel of Colorado. She is influenced by the teachings of her grandfather in Jewish texts and history. Her work shares a deep connection to the past, to tradition, and to the memory of those who have lost their lives, Al Kiddush Hashem, in the sanctification of G-d’s Name.
Born in Denver, Colorado, Feldman currently resides in Chicago, Illinois, and is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The event is free to the public, and registration is required. To register for the event, go to http://www.hillelcolorado.org/artopening.

“Cloaked in Light” will be on display at the David and Laura Merage Foundation Art Gallery at the University of Denver, 2390 South Race Street, Denver, CO 80210 from September 22-December 22, 2013.

Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. The exhibit is free to the public and is made possible by the generous support of the David and Laura Merage Foundation.
