The City of Vaughan is hosting a visual arts exhibition celebrating Jewish heritage at the Atrium Gallery, located at Vaughan City Hall, 2141 Major Mackenzie Drive, from July 18 to September 7, 2012. The free exhibition is open to the public Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. The display is entitled The Symbolic Language of Abstract Expression: Reflections on Jewish Heritage and showcases original works by three internationally accomplished artists.
The exhibition includes recent abstract paintings by Rina Gottesman, Bianka Guna and Rachel Ovadia. All three artists weave symbolism into their abstract compositions. These symbols become expressive vehicles for conveying cultural traditions, ideologies and personal experiences that often reveal some personal element of Jewish heritage relevant to the artist.
