There Was Light – Harriet Goren

Artist Harriet Goren created this work (giclée print made from digital painting) to honor the memory of her friend Remie.

In the artist’s words:

“In addition to being a strong, determined, endlessly creative and loving wife, mother, and friend with a wonderful sense of humor, she was also a renowned scholar of the medieval Arabic world who focused on how people lived their daily lives. This text, and Esther, reminded me of her spirit and soul. The design is inspired by Arabic calligraphy, and the colors evoke the sand and water that she loved.”

Eitz Chaim Shadow Box

A Shadow Box “Eitz Chaim” created by artist Paula Shuchat Miller using beads, fabric, paper wood, and stone (2007). The text of the Eitz Chaim – the tree of life – is printed on the scroll and is connected to the roots at the base of the piece. Here the words act as a foundation to support the growth of the tree and is an integral part of the natural ecosystem showcased in the box.
