The Art of Crafting the Shoe With Kobi Levi, Israeli shoe designer

Mayers Collection.

The Art of Block and Linocut Printing With Bill Farran, artist and historian

February 6

Linocut artist Bill Farran shares the story of the art of linocut and block printing--working in reverse-- creating “what I leave behind” prints. An ancient method of printing which originated with the Chinese, block printing is the art of relief cuts using wood. When Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso started using linoleum in the early 1900s, its popularity grew. Farran’s talent with the medium, carving in reverse and then hand printing each piece, and his passion for his subject, the wooden synagogues of Eastern Europe and their importance in Jewish cultural history, combines his love of history, geography, Jewish genealogy and art in a compelling presentation of this intriguing art form.

The Magic Moment: The Miracle of Photography With Fred Rosenberg, photographer and speaker

March 6

Art Talks and Art Workshops are generously underwritten by Beatrice “Buddy” Mayer
