“WAZE”

Waze, a GPS-based geographical navigation application program for smartphones provides turn-by-turn information and user-submitted travel times and route details.  The mobile telephone network Waze Ltd., which was founded in 2008 in Israel by Uri Levine, software engineer Ehud Shabtai and Amir Shiner, and is now available in over 100 countries, was acquired by Google. (en.wikipidea.org)

 

The exhibit, from Israel’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Space, displays 47 photographs highlighting groundbreaking discoveries in agriculture, medicine, robotics, computerization, archeology, space, mathematics and social sciences. Examples include the development of Waze, the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app; innovative treatments for Parkinson’s disease; and the essential office gadget, the USB flash drive.

 

ROBOTICS IN SURGERY

Surgeons who utilize Mazor Robotics Renaissance generally specialize in orthopedic surgery or neurosurgery.  Mazor Robotics believes in healing through innovation by developing and introducing revolutionary technology and products aimed at redefining the gold standard of quality care. Mazor Robotics Guidance Systems enables surgeons to conduct spine and brain procedures in a precise manner in the United States and throughout the world. (www.mazorrobotics.com)

 

 

The photography was supplied by the Israeli government and originally displayed at Tel Aviv Ben Gurion Airport in Israel. For the U.S. debut, the exhibit space was donated by Palm Beach Outlets and curated by Ilene Gruber Adams.  “It’s an incredible honor to curate such an important exhibition for the Jewish Federation. Scientific research serves as a bridge between cultures and nations. I look forward to seeing the positive reaction of the community,” added Adams.

 

 

 

“SEEDLESS GRAPES”

Seedless grapes are generally preferred by consumers for fresh consumption. The development of new seedless selections has been recognized as a key factor in breeding programs throughout the world. Israel’s Volcani Center is actively involved in breeding seedless grapes. Special emphasis is given to the time of ripening, firmness, high sugar content, special aromas, loose and uniform bunches, natural big berries, good shelf life and reduced labor costs world wide.  (www.ishs.org)

 

 

 

“This dynamic, international exhibit offers residents and visitors the opportunity to form deeper connections to Israel through visual arts and learning about prolific scientific achievements. We are thrilled to bring this thought-provoking exhibition to the community and showcase some of the amazing inventions that have come from Israel,” said Bar Sananes, Jewish Federation’s Israeli emissary.

 

NANO-GHOST TECHNOLOGY IN MEDICINE

Nano-Ghosts technology offers a versatile and highly selective targeted delivery system to combat cancer and other diseases, thanks to scientists Marcelle Machluf and colleagues at the Technion Israel of Technology. (www.technion.ac.il)

The exhibit “Israel Visual, showcases four talented and diverse artists, working in varied media, from fiber art to digitally enhanced paintings.  Ilene Gruber Adams and Rolando Chang Barrero were contacted to help put together the exhibit that that will be on display at the Bente & Daniel S.

Guests will have an opportunity to immerse themselves in a culturally enriching exhibition featuring works created by four local Israeli artists.

The artists are Leora Stewart Klaymer, Judy “Yudit” Eisingber, Linda Behar in collaboration with Raheleh T. Filsoofi and the late Dina Knapp.

 

 

LEORA STEWART KLAYMER

 

“Virgin Bride” by Leora Stewart Klaymer

 

Leora, born in Jerusalem, has taught in Philadelphia, New York and right here in South Florida.  She is a fiber artist and her work has been shown extensively world-wide.” My Fiber constructions are based on my observations of Nature and are a metaphor for the cycles of growth in life and in the natural world – landscapes, seascapes, cell structures, organic forms built with different fibers, along with beads, feathers, coral shards using a variety of textile techniques to create these three dimensional abstracted, structures” Leora explains.

 

JUDY  EISINGER

“Popsicle Flowers” by Judy Eisinger

 

Judy Eisinger, a graphic designer and painter exhibiting colorful paintings created using both tradition painting methods and digital art. Born in Budapest, Hungary, and escaping that communist country in 1956, Judy moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where she began painting at an early age and, at 13, took first place for the design of the City Holiday Card. Judy studied fine art at the Cleveland Institute of Art and the Cooper School of Art, which led to a four-year scholarship to Kent State University. After graduating with honors, Judy began her painting career by showing her colorful paintings at the Shaker Heights Artist’s Cooperative Gallery. Her work soon became sought after and now hangs in private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Israel.  She and her family moved to Israel where Judy designed greeting cards for LION Printing in Tel Aviv.  She has illustrated a children’s book, taught graphic design as an Adjunct Professor at Palm Beach Community College and is the owner and creative lead of Yudit Design (yudit.com)

 

 

LINDA  BEHAR

“Peace Labyrinth” by Linda Behar and Raheleh T. Filsoofi

 

Linda Behar’s current work explores a new approach to feminist concepts that are being explored by many artists: the idea of separating personal identity from the body, and digitally objectifying the female figure. Her work combines laser cutting with traditional printmaking techniques, specifically woodblock printing. Her work here, “Peace Labyrinth”, endeavors to promote peace and tolerance through the discovery of what we hold in common. The artists, Linda Behar, who is of Jewish heritage and Raheleh T. Filsoofi, who is of Iranian heritage, intend to bring diverse communities together in conversation and to send a message of tolerance and acceptance throughout the world.

 

DINAH KNAPP

 

 Collage by Dina Knapp

 

Dina Knapp, is known for making wearable art an art form. Her history and memory series compress history and culture through a layering of objects and images incorporating nostalgic postcards, painting, crochet, vintage fabrics, found objects and tourist souvenirs.  Born in Cyprus and raised in Israel and New York City by Holocaust survivors, Dina died this past October, at 69, of cancer.

Artist, Susan Schanerman

 

Susan didn’t pick up her first paint brush until 1995, and then it took almost 20 years before she gained enough self-confidence to begin to call herself an “Artist” and showcase her work. Susan’s work is playful, whimsical, uplifting, inspiring and FUN. She uses vibrant color and most of her work has a child-like tone as though it’s speaking for the child within her expressing the freedom and joy of childhood, something she never experienced.

 

 

“Mod Bow-K” by Susan Schanerman

 

Today, Susan’s art is her passion. She believes there is creativity in us all. It is our very nature and acts as a means of communication, heart to heart, soul to soul. In 2004, Susan was inspired to create her artwork reflecting the idea of “heARTmatters: There’s ART in Every heART”.  This will be Susan’s first Solo Exhibition of her heART. Her deepest desire that her work “Touches Your Heart, Stirs Your Soul and Puts a Smile on Your Face!!” The show will also have a wonderful opening performance “Variety Show” by VSA’s SpotLighters: On The Road.

 

 

The mission of VSA-Palm Beach County is to create a society where people with disabilities can learn through, participate in and enjoy the arts. To find out how much fun this creative process can be contact VSA-Florida Palm Beach County at 561-966-7025 or visit www.vsapbc.com

ANITA  LOVITT:

 

“Everglades” by Anita Lovitt

 

 

Anita Lovitt is an award-winning painter, illustrator, designer, teacher and collaborative artist.  She tells The Rickie Report, “My theme for this exhibition is “The Solace of Nature.”  Graduating from Philadelphia College of Art (now University of the Arts) with top honors and a degree in Illustration, Anita also studied with some legendary teachers (Milton Glaser at School of Visual Arts in New York, Charles Reid, and Robert Beverly Hale at the Art Students League in New York City). Her award-winning illustrations, paintings and designs have appeared in children’s books, greeting cards, surface designs and graphic designs for the home and gift industry.

 

 

“Transcendence” by Anita Lovitt

 

 

In 2006 Anita worked with a team of counselors to produce a series of illustrative legacy quilts for Project Hope to document the impact of Hurricane Wilma on local communities. She is the creator of the large “Dancing Pineapples Mural” which graces the entrance to Pineapple Grove in downtown Delray Beach, as well as numerous private and public commissions.  Anita has taught drawing and painting for many years, and is also a talented digital artist. Her favorite medium, however, is watercolor.
