Opening for ‘The Watercolor Paintings of David Firestone Feinberg’ at Hebrew Tabernacle

Please join us as we meet this neighborhood husband, father and doting grandfather who has spent a lifetime as an artist, pianist, composer, and poet. The exhibit features twenty-two paintings, each containing one letter of the Hebrew alphabet surrounded by characters from his semi-imaginary reality of figures and objects that show up in is other watercolors as well.
He states, “The design of the letter itself is an inspiration or perhaps the letter has some symbolic or unconscious meaning.”

There was always the incantation: “Whoever wishes you harm, may harm come to them!” And just in case that didn’t work, there were garlic, cloves, and other means to repel the Evil Eye. But nothing warded off the polio that afflicted Brenda Serotte at 7, in the fall of 1954. This is a heartbreakingly hilarious memoir of Serotte’s growing up Sephardic among Ashkenazi neighbors in the Bronx.
