Moshe Elimelech, Sharon Ben-Tal, Rhea Carmi, Malka Nedivi, Gali Rotstein, Lidia Shaddow and Guri Stark are examples of the strong and vital part that American Israeli artists play in the contemporary West Coast art scene. Their interests and artwork are diverse and respond to the myriad of issues of contemporary art and life at home and globally. In this exhibition, issues and interpretations of the beauty of the land and the environment are addressed along with aspects of memory, personal identity, heritage, family and abstract expressions of time and change. Together these works add their unique visual voices to life and art in Southern California.
