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.”

David’s artwork features characters from his semi-imaginary reality of figures and objects, particularly those of the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The design of each letter is an inspiration or perhaps the letter itself has some symbolic or unconscious meaning.  We welcome you to see them for yourself.  This exhibit will be up until April 29th.
