Mixed Media Art by Karen Kassap

“On My Mind:  One Jewish Woman’s View” is now on exhibition.  Artist Karen Kassap, who studied mixed media collage with Debi Pendell, created these works from painted papers, printed papers, acrylic paint, acrylic gel medium, and various found objects.  Her artwork is an expression of her identity as a woman, a mother, a wife and a Jew, she explains.  The proud triplet mom of Naomi, Myles and Sam, and the wife of Cary Caldwell, she volunteers her legal services at the Apostle Immigrant Services and works as a facilitator for the ADL Words to Action program.

A conversation with the artist will be Saturday, August 17 at 12:45, following the weekly services and luncheon; Sabbath rules will be observed.  The exhibition closes August 20.
