Amherst Arts Night Plus: Greta Kessler
Thursday, September 5, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Exhibition reception for Jewish Papercuts by Greta Kessler. Traditional papercuts were made by Jewish in Central and Eastern Europe for holidays, birth announcements, ritual events, marriage contracts, memorials, new moon blessings, and in synagogues. A revival of papercut artwork has taken place in the past sixty years. Greta’s papercuts celebrate Jewish holidays and the historical land of Israel. She uses many Judaic symbols and forms in her designs. Her imagery is sourced in the Bible, Psalms, Jewish history, and observations of nature in Israel.
