evanstonnowevent_post

“Walking in Unity: Elements of the Passover Seder” featuring works by artist Gabriella Boros is being shown at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 2515 Central Park, Evanston, IL in our new Tower Entrance Gallery from April 1 to June 12, 2017.

The show opening reception is on Saturday, April 1 from 7 – 9 p.m. and includes a presentation by the artist. Lite fare will be served.

Gabriella Boros has shown her prints, paintings and multimedia works nationally and internationally. Born in Israel, Gabriella immigrated to the United States as a child. 

“My upbringing included bedtime stories of Holocaust survival by my parents, and was shaped while sitting in an air raid shelter during the Israeli Six Day War,” shares Gariella. “It was also influenced by my experience as a young immigrant coming to America with no English language. The result is storytelling in many forms, expressed through painting, art books, drawing, sculpture and most recently woodcuts.”

“My woodcuts range in topics from my personal fables, religious topics and scientific/political work,” Gabriella explains. “The stark imagery, the concision of line and the need for a heightened narrative in order to convey the message, are challenges that I eagerly embrace in printmaking. My prints are always created as a series. I like to find a theme and develop the narrative visually.“

View these beautiful images based on Passover and the Seder in a year when the Christian, Greek Orthodox and Jewish Calendars coincide. The Tower Entrance Gallery will be open to the community on Saturday, April 1 and April 22 from 7-9 p.m., and Sunday, June 11 from 2 – 4 p.m.
