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.
