      This exhibit of 17 collage portrait paintings anchors individual experiences in a collective narrative of Jewish immigration in the early 1900s from Czarist Russian Ukraine and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, weaving through the Great Depression, WWI and WWII, Jewish South Beach in the 1950s, and the artists coming of age in the 1960s-7-s to present times as the mother of two adult Black/Jewish children.

    • Following the Light: Photographs by Judy Glickman

      Judy Glickman
      Maine Jewish Museum –
      Jody Sataloff History and Art Pavillion

      September 2 2022 – October 27 2022

      “Following the Light” is a departure for Glickman from over 40 years of black-and-white film and darkroom work. As Glickman describes,”Photographing in color with a digital camera has sent me in a new direction — one of exploration and introspection. With a sense of inner presence, the purity of color itself, and its deepest shadows, I am stepping into the light, into the image itself. Through abstractions, patterms, and different perspectives, photography has continued to allow me to immerse and express myself.”
