Art & Remembrance: Fabric of Survival
Apr 24 - June 1, 2014
Free exhibit opening reception Apr 24
40 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.
Exhibits are presented in two locations: The Isaacs Gallery, which is located on your right just past the Osher Marin JCC front desk, and the Kurland Lounge, which is the room on the far left when you enter from the Lobby. Both areas are open during regular Marin JCC hours.
