The Bunny Fain Gallery at Temple Habonim is celebrating the art of printmaking with its newest show. From March 8 to April 30, the gallery will feature a number of accomplished artists who work out of the print shop at the Providence Art Club. In addition, a mural created by the religious school students of Temple Habonim, under the guidance of Seymour Glantz and Education Director David Perolman, will be on display.
The print artists have created a beautiful assortment of work using varied printmaking techniques. Among the types of prints on display will be monotypes, which are created when the artist uses a combination of painting and printmaking to make a one-of-a-kind image, and collagraphs, in which prints are made from a collage. Materials, color and texture all contribute into making the collagraph unique and effective. Some of the other printing techniques involve the enhancement of additional mediums and with collage. Two instructors at the print shop who introduce new techniques to the artists are Betsy Zimmerman and Abba Cudney.
The mural represents the artwork and reflections of the students from kindergarten through grade 10. Working with the concept of “love your neighbor as yourself,” the theme is about inclusivity and uses the rainbow image as a symbol of that theme.
The show will have an artists’ reception on Sunday, March 22 from 1-3 p.m.
The Bunny Fain Gallery at Temple Habonim is at 165 New Meadow Road, Barrington. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Thursday from 1-4 p.m., Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and by appointment. For information, call or email firstname.lastname@example.org
