Overview
_______________________________________________________________________________________________

The art of fused glass has been a passion of Jacki Cohen for the past eight years. Jacki is inspired by bright colors and abstract designs and shapes. She combines these elements in every handmade piece she creates. Jacki views the purpose of art as a delight to the senses, a piece of beauty that makes one feel good. Varied hues, vibrant shades and vivid tones ignite her enthusiasm for glass. Detail and texture play a big role in her custom designs. Jacki is known to create functional and decorative contemporary home décor, including cabinet knobs and drawer pulls. She has also created a special collection of Judaica inspired art pieces.

Overview

After retiring as a cardiac surgeon, Art Levy returned to his first love-art. His underlying theme is “beginnings” and it continues to dominate his works today. His most recent artistic journey focuses on the beginnings of the written language. In the pieces being exhibited, Levy uses Paleo-Hebrew pictographs which may date back to the 12th century B.C.E. He employs the ancient technique of encaustic painting, a medium dating back to the times of Cleopatra. Because wax is used as the color pigment binder, encaustic paintings often have a rich texture of a somewhat three dimensional nature. His two paintings, Birth and Power are perfect examples of this technique.
