The UJA-NY Federation Gallery features an exhibit by Michal Nachman, opening April 5.
The image of Theodor Herzl standing on his hotel balcony in Basel, Switzerland as he contemplates the future state of the Jewish people is familiar to almost every Jew and Israeli. The image reminds us of a time when such a modern state was a mere idea. Today, a little over 100 years later, the State of Israel is a vision realized.

About the Artist
Michal Nachmany is a New York City-based artist and teacher. She was born in Jerusalem in 1958 and moved to New York in the 1980s. “The mixture of colors, sounds, and smells from the streets and the souks of Jerusalem shaped my awareness of the past as a foundation of the present. Today, I create pieces with many layers, textures, and techniques, such as collaging, printmaking, acrylic painting, and drawing.”
