Art & Remembrance: Fabric of Survival 

Part I of Exhibit | Part II at Congregation Kol Shofar

clientuploads/directory/CJP/2013-14 Season/Art-close-My-Childhood-Home.jpg40 years after the Holocaust, Esther Nisenthal Krinitz chose a unique way to retell her childhood memories of pre-war Poland and incredible story of survival: through stitching and embroidery.

In 1977, at the age of 50, Krinitz began creating her works of fabric art. Trained as a seamstress, but with no training in art, she ultimately created 36 remarkable fabric pictures of strong, vivid images and folk-art realism, meticulously stitching the narrative of her story beneath each picture.

In this exhibit, view life-sized photographs of Esther's exquisite needlework panels.

Exhibit on view through Jun 1. View Part II of the exhibit at Congregation Kol Shofar as part of the community Yom Hashoah Observance on April 27th. Click here for details
