Habonim gallery features diverse show


Diversity is key to the May/June show in the Bunny Fain Gallery at Temple Habonim. Three very different creative approaches are featured. The show opens with a wine and cheese reception on Sunday, May 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. and it continue through June 28.

Artist Nickerson B. Miles exhibits his photography and encaustics.  His excellent eye captures color and form, making the viewer aware of a new perspective. His recent show at the Providence Art Club received excellent reviews.

The work of Karen Murtha shows her expertise in technique, medium and style. Her mastery of brush and paint delights the viewer.  She captures the movement of her figures, their relationship to one another and a unique story is conveyed. She is also a Providence Art Club member.

Mural 5778 is a creation of the religious school classes of Temple Habonim under the guidance of Education Director David Perolman.  This year’s mural represents our Religious School theme of Bal Tashchit, “Do Not Destroy.” Students collected and used bottle caps to create a tree, reminding the viewer to take care of the planet for the next generation.

The Bunny Fain Gallery at Temple Habonim is at 165 New Meadow Road in Barrington.  Gallery hours are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and by appointment.  For information, call 401-245-6536 or email gallery@templehabonim.org.
