Robin Atlas is a visual artist, print maker, fine arts consultant and curator, whose work has appeared throughout the United States.  She creates contemporary visual midrash – the artistic expression of sacred Jewish texts and Halachic laws — adding her own creative voice and vision to the ever evolving anthology of commentary.

Her Lashon Hara narrative features twenty individual deconstructed pieces of diverse elements coalesced on hand-dyed collaged fabric, using hand embroidery, free-hand machine stitching, printmaking and other creative techniques.
Robin works out of 49th Street Studios, a collective of five women artists in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, and is a member of the Jewish Art Salon, the American Guild of Judaic Artists, and ORA Northwest.

The Anne Frank Center USA, a partner organization of the Anne Frank House, uses the diary and spirit of Anne Frank as unique tools to advance her legacy, to educate young people and communities in the U.S. and Canada about the dangers of intolerance, antisemitism, racism and discrimination, and to inspire the next generation to build a world based on equal rights and mutual respect.

The Jewish Art Salon is an innovative, international community of artists and art professionals. Since 2008 it has promoted contemporary art exploring Jewish themes and related to current issues. The salon provides important resources and programs for its members; it organizes exhibits, art events, and (in the New York area) bi-monthly salon sessions with international artists and scholars, in order to create an appreciation for innovative Jewish art in the contemporary art world.
