This month in the Slutzky Art Gallery
Batel Yehezkel – “Recomposing”
February 24 – March 21, 2014
Opening Reception Sunday, March 2 from 11 a.m. − 1 p.m.
Growing up in Israel, I was fortunate enough to visit Jerusalem many times. But, it was not until I saw it through my children’s eyes that I discovered all of its true colors and beauty. Their appreciation and wonder of the city inspired me to create works of art that bring to life all the different emotions elicited by the Holy City.
My life experiences, both personal and professional, have brought me closer to my Jewish Religion and Culture, allowing me create artwork that displays many of our beautiful traditions.
I am inspired by my family, my faith and culture, my environment, and my travels, which are my passions and the subjects of my paintings.
Batel Yehezkel immigrated to the US from Israel at the age of thirteen. She holds a Bachelor of Arts and Masters degree in TESOL, and a second Masters in Jewish Education and Communal Service.
