Art Without Passports: The Process of Making Artwork

Written by: Karen Tolvstad

Thursday, May 16, 10:30 a.m, Zidell Hall

Join us for our final journey through Art Without Passports as we take a look at Art in Process. There is no passport needed to explore the delicate processes of creating  Stained Glass, Illuminated Manuscripts, and Clay Sculpture.

Leader, Arts Activist Greg Lewis, will build on centuries of art methods and explore the artist’s inspiration, skill and determination to create lasting works of art in these three mediums.

We’ll explore the intricate steps of making stained glass with its vast ability to transmit design, light and color. We’ll dive into clay sculpture with its malleable qualities to shape and form dimensional likenesses. And we will take a close look at the time-honored art of creating  illuminated manuscripts.

Join us for this rich and immersive presentation, Thursday, May 16, at 10:30 a.m. in Zidell Hall.


Two Days to Remember – Israeli Independence Day and Memorial Day

Written by: Karen Tolvstad


Thursday, May 2, 1 p.m., Rose Schnitzer Manor Front Lobby
Yom Hazikaron- Israeli Memorial Day
Yom Ha’atzmaut – Israel Independence Day

Israel’s Independence Day celebrates the formal establishment of the State of Israel, when members of the provisional government read and signed a Declaration of Independence in Tel Aviv.

Yom Ha’atzmaut in Israel is always preceded by Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day for fallen soldiers. Linking these two days is clear: Israelis owe their independence – the very existence of their country – to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for their cause.

The Israeli flag will be displayed in the main lobby of Rose Schnitzer Manor on Wednesday, May 2. We welcome you to gather around the flag at 1 p.m. and join in singing Hatikvah – Israel’s national anthem.
