Scriptures in Pictures: The D'rash Design Project Revisited by Christina Mattison
Opening Reception | 3:30 PM–4:30 PM
"D'rash" in Hebrew means commentary or exposition. In February 2012 Christina Mattison began creating a new piece of art each week inspired by that week's Torah portion, haftarah portion (Prophets) or concurrent Jewish holiday. This exhibit features works not seen in her 2014 exhibition at the J.
