Opening Night Reception with the Artist

December 10, 2014

7:00 P.M. Exclusive Friends of the Gallery, private reception with the artist

RSVP: 858-362-1114 or gallery@lfjcc.org

7:30 P.M. FREE and open to the public, film presentation and discussion with Hanan Harchol in the David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre

Gallery open following the presentation

This solo exhibition will feature Harchol’s entire animated series, a collection of shorts that teach Jewish ethics to adults and teens using thought provoking and funny conversations between animated versions of Hanan and his Israeli parents. Included are drawings, vertical tapestries of stills from his animations arranged in comic strips, and panels of teachings that inspire the art. Each episode focuses on a particular theme such as forgiveness, love, or gratitude, distilling major Jewish teachings on that theme into engaging conversation. The series offers a fresh approach to accessing and applying thousands of years of Jewish wisdom to contemporary life.  Harchol notes “the humor and cartooning is a way to get a lot deeper into the subject. You can reach people subconsciously — people let their guard down and the next thing you know, you’ve touched their soul.”
