Essence of Life
An all-media exhibition featuring artwork focusing on the Jewish holiday of Tu B'Shevat.
January 8 - February 9, 2017
Tu B’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar—celebrated this year on Saturday, February 11, 2017—marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. The holiday is marked by eating fruit, particularly grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. It is also a day in celebration of the idea that “man is a tree of the field,” and reflects on the lessons we can derive from our botanical analogue.
CALL FOR ART
Jewish and non-Jewish artists of all media are welcome to submit artwork reflecting on growth, renewal and nature. Artwork featuring live plants is acceptable but must be delivered to the gallery with necessary tools to care for them (plant food, care instructions, etc.). Please click below to learn more.
