Ita B'Ita: Ita Aber in Her Time 60 Years of Creativity and Innovation by Ita Aber
This retrospective exhibition shows us 60 years of one artist's oeuvre in fiber, painting, sculpture, appliqué, embroidery, and printing, most inspired by ancient Jewish art from a contemporary feminist and humanitarian vantage point. It is exceedingly diverse - it includes Purim masks, beaded mezuzot, jewelry, ceremonial Judaica, and synagogue adornments done in appliqué, embroidery, patchwork and pieced fabrics.
