14th Street Y Gallery
Transient Land by Michal Geva / Curated by Aya Goshen
December 6 – January 19
Transient Land presents Michal Geva’s investigation into the architecture and landscape of her homeland through mixed media paintings that are painted on found objects she collects in her neighborhood. Merging between New-York objects and Israeli images reflects the formation of a hybrid identity. The exhibit offers the viewer a journey into Geva’s imaginary and fluid locations that are unrecognizable yet evoke a familiarity.
Transient Land Gallery Opening
December 6, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Join artist Michal Geva, curator Aya Goshen and the 14Y Community for the opening of Transient Land. An evening of art, wine and Hanukkah lights.

In What the Night Sings, author-illustrator Vesper Stamper creates black and white, sepia-toned ink wash paintings that call to mind the archival documentation of the Holocaust during World War II, while using metaphoric imagery which describes the inner landscape of the characters.
