Ma-Sa - Journey

December 18, 2017 - February 22, 2018
Opening Night Reception: December 18 at 7:00 P.M.

Neta Levi, a native Israeli from Foster City, California brings us her new art show - “Ma-Sa”. The show, which means “journey” in Hebrew, is based on her family’s personal journey. Though personal, the dream-like images are open to anyone’s interpretation, encouraging visitors to see their own memories in the work. All of Levi’s work indicates a longing for the Land of Israel. Childhood memories of the bustling open air Israeli marketplace - with its intense blending of people, goods, colors, scents and sounds, have inspired Levi’s work.

Art is for sale. Proceeds to benefit the Gotthelf Art Gallery.

Opening Night Reception: December 18 at 7:00 P.M. FREE and Open to the Public.
