Diane Russell in the NEWS!

WHY I PAINT PORTRAITS OF MUSICIANS is the name of the article in the magazine REALISM Today written by Cherie Dawn Haas. It’s a wonderful article filled with brilliant insights and relevant to painters and non painters alike! Here’s the link: https://realismtoday.com/figurative-art-painting-portraits-musicians/?fbclid=IwAR0YbAfCmMg3DW7UNbE7kwe5bvxTwlr6W_wYXaOrFDMFmWnncyS41kaHgZ8

DIANE FREDGANT Featured on Blog!

ORA President Diane Fredgant was recently featured in A POPULAR blog: The Times of Israel.

It’s a lovely bit of exposure for her as an artist and also for ORA!

Check out the blog!

Diane is a founding member of ORA and a very talented silk artist who also happens to sculpt in stone. She has a wonderful sense of humor which hopefully means she will forgive me for posting this picture of her taken at an ORA Chanukkah party where we also celebrated her birthday with beads, head gear and fancy glasses. (We love you Diane!)

We are pleased to announce that the ORAShalom Winter show is up! You can see the new display in the Isaak Foyer of Congregation Neveh Shalom.

Congratulations to Martha Decherd (her tallit is displayed above) who has taken on the reins of coordinating this show!

We offer our gratitude to Laura Joy Fendel who chaired ORAShalom for several years.

Most items in the display are available for purchase. A percentage of sales is donated to the synagogue.
