Serving the Garden, 2017 40 x 72 inches

“...God took Adam and placed him/her in the Garden of Eden to work it and to guard it.” - Genesis

I was moved by this passage when read by Rabbi Sheldon Lewis - see his and Marianna Grossman's article below on my blog. This painting is a poem to our directive and our task to serve.

Ocean, 2015      
Bay Area artist Judy Gittelsohn exhibits her new paintings, 
Oh the Ocean, a series of acrylic paintings of words and phrases that read like swirling colorful loops. Each painting is constructed from a cluster of scripted letters. In the finished state, you see hints of language surging in and out through waves of paint, currents of color and shape.
Her paintings emerge through many applications of paint developing the theme of an active, turbulent or flowing ocean - the surface sometimes obscuring, sometimes offering a glimpse of previous thought and direction. The shapes are active and curving with a focus on the edges.
Judy has been a Bay Area artist for the past four decades exhibiting consistently at interesting locations including the Martin Luther King Library in San Jose, Stanford University Faculty Club, Stanford Hillel, and Woodside Priory Gallery. She is a Golden Paints Certified Working Artist. Golden makes paint for artists and Judy teaches about these materials.
Judy will be painting in the gallery daily during the exhibition.  
In addition, work by three photographers will be on display.
Matt Heckert exhibits his photos of San Francisco's North Beach in the late 1970s.  These black - and - white photos alternately depict the city at night and bear witness to a brief window of youth and the beginnings of the punk rock/new wave scene in San Francisco.
Patrick Glaize shows us rare views of The Panama Canal zone. His photo series is a journey in the remains of what used to be a strategic and special American territory; a unique place that no longer exists. Tropical overgrowth and deferred maintenance tell an eerie story.
Greg Gatwood's award winning photos of his black lab near the ocean confirm the daring and heroic in animals.
Viewers are invited to visit often as the artwork showcased will change daily.
A superb group of artists present great work in the perfect place.
