This exciting and eclectic gallery show is the result of a prominent and creative group of local visual and performance artists’ explorations with Rabbi Sandy Sasso to uncover the personal significance of the biblical story of Jacob, his dreams and his angelic confrontations. This is a follow-up to the artistic/spiritual work on the Binding of Isaac that culminated in the highly acclaimed program at Christian Theological Seminary in 2014.
The gallery exhibit will include the outstanding works of painters, sculptors, poets, musician,s and other performers. The performance pieces will be part of the reception evening.
Artists/performers will include Dawn Batson, Gabrielle Cerberville, Dan Cooper, John Domont, Pam Blevins Hinkle Sofiya Inger, David Landis, Bruce Lowenthal, Ray Marquette, Rabbi Sandy Sasso, and Wendy Vergoz.
