Marc Shanker: Traces of Sepharad (Huellas de Sefarad): Etchings of Judeo-Spanish Proverbs
The Osher Marin JCC is excited to announce “Traces of Sepharad (Huellas de Sefarad): Etchings of Judeo-Spanish Proverbs,” a new exhibition of a series of etchings by New York-based artist Marc Shanker. The series, based on Judeo-Spanish proverbs, is densely layered with meaning and cultural connections to medieval Sephardic wisdom and culture. Shanker’s naïve drawing style distills the proverbs’ spirit into simple images without sacrificing the complex meanings contained within. The etchings reflect the proverbs’ appealing mix of common sense, timeless wisdom, pithy humor, and irreverence.
