Art by Leslie J. Klein
T’chiah: Spirit and Fire, a retrospective exhibit by mixed media and fiber artist Leslie J. Klein, opens March 10. Klein has worked in pastels, oil pastels, graphite and mixed media, creating her images from a Jewish and feminist perspective. She is also well known for her work in fabric; she constructs garments and objects of hand-dyed, airbrushed, silk-screened, and embellished fabrics to address her perspective on Judaic themes. Objects, wire, beads, machine embroidery, photo-transfer and other complex cloth techniques conceptually allude to ideas, messages and symbols. Oil pastels from The Eden Trilogy and fiber arts from All That Remains: A Holocaust Exhibition are included in this exhibition.
A reception and guided tour by the artist will be Sunday, March 15 from 11:00 am until 12 noon.
Located at 85 Harrison Street (corner of Whalley Avenue – Route 63 – in Westville)
