“Time and Light” by Sally Holcomb Blackman
October 23, 2023 – February 24, 2024, Lower Level Gallery @ HBT
Exhibition Curated by: Elizabeth Greisman
I am delighted to be showing my paintings at Holy Blossom. The use of the Lower Level Gallery is a mitzvah for the artistic community; we are always searching for a new venue to show our work. And I hope it is for Holy Blossom, an interesting and intriguing experience to see the world through the eyes of varied visual artists.
“Time and Light” is the title of my show of landscape paintings. The “time” refers to the years spent travelling in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia and in Italy and Israel. The actual painting process takes time, as well as the journey of thinking, learning and evolving my painting style.
The choice of photo out of the many photographs taken and the editing of the composition takes time. The editing omits details that are not important, leaving the essential feeling of that particular landscape.
“Light” refers to the light available due to the weather, season and time of day. To me, all the seasons are beautiful in their own way, from the austerity of winter light to the abundance of light in the spring and summer, including the overcast days that come with living in Ontario.
This exhibit is sponsored by the Yosef Wosk Family Foundation in loving memory of Essie Arnold, a longtime member and volunteer of Holy Blossom Temple.
