Shoshi Norman will speak about Neighbors – an art exhibit she curated last year that dealt with the different stories (and histories) of an Israeli Jewish Artist, Moshe Kassirer, and a Palestinian Muslim, Ahmad Canaan. Both artists live in Israel.
Igal Fedida will show us his artwork displayed in his gallery.

About Igal Fedida
From an early age, Israeli-born Igal demonstrated an intuitive penchant for the arts. Painting has always been a special process for Fedida that allowed him to draw upon his Jewish background and intertwine art with that of the complex, universal human pursuit of spiritual truth. Fedida’s artistic style has emerged into one that utilizes raw, construction materials in a free-spirited, vibrant manner that highlights contrasting colors and forms to depict his exploration of life’s dichotomies as well as his relationship with religion and G-d. The Genesis Series, currently on display in New York City and Miami, is Fedida’s chromatic treatise on the meaning of creation.
