Artist Rachel Kanter will give a talk at her exhibit at BEKI
Sponsored by: Congregation Beth El – Keser Israel (BEKI)
Fiber artist Rachel Kanter, whose work was featured in “Reinventing Ritual,” a major exhibition at The Jewish Museum in New York City, and has twice been included in the Jerusalem Biennale, will speak about her work on Saturday, January 12 at 12:45 pm at Congregation Beth El – Keser Israel.
Kanter’s work brings everyday motifs of American women’s lives into the realm of the sacred object. She creates tallitot for women that are inspired by the four-cornered robes worn by Hebrew priests in Biblical times but are designed using vintage apron patterns from the 20th century.
A collection of Kanter’s art is on view at BEKI until January 20.
Congregation Beth El - Keser Israel is at 85 Harrison St., at the corner of Whalley Avenue, New Haven. Sabbath rules will be observed. For more information: 203.389.2108, https://www.beki.org
