Pen & Ink Drawing by Murray Kronick

Pen & ink artist Murray Kronick says “When most people travel and see something interesting or captivating, the first thing they whip out is their camera or i-Phone. For me, it is my sketch book”. Murray’s wife, Sylvia says “you may not want to travel with Murray. When he says ‘give me a few minutes’, beware, it is best to expect you will be there for a few hours.”

For the past two decades, Murray & Sylvia have devoted two to three months a year traveling on volunteer missions to third world countries. Many of their trips are sponsored by The American Jewish World Service. ajws.org. These assignments have afforded them an opportunity to give back, while immersing themselves in Africa, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Burma (now Myanmar), Thailand, Cambodia and Indonesia…yet, in addition to returning stateside with a feeling of accomplishment, memories and photos, they return with beautiful pen and ink art.

 

 

 

Although “Tzedakah” ( helping others) is their driving force, they ensure that they build in free days, or pre or post-service travel time to see sights and experience the people, unique to every country on the globe. During these days, Murray captures spectacular scenery with his pen, while Sylvia relishes the moments, exploring and taking in what the surroundings offer.

On Nov. 16, 2015 at 2 p.m., Murray will present a talk and slide show, amplifying the satisfaction he and Sylvia have achieved in ‘giving back’. He will provide an overview of the work they do on their missions, and how he incorporates and extends these experiences by capturing art subjects, creating a medium that would not exist if there wasn’t a love for tzedakah, travel and art.
