Bazel Gallery presents Alice Mizrachi is a solo exhibition entitled “Windows of Love”

10 Jul

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MEDIA CONTACT:
Bazel Gallery
+972-3-6024957
bazelgallerytlv@gmail.com

BAZEL GALLERY presents ALICE MIZRACHI
in her solo exhibition,
“WINDOWS OF LOVE”
“Windows of Love,” presented by Bazel Gallery, features select works by artist Alice Mizrachi that explore and celebrate the many facets of love.

Alice paints the simple exchanges of love she glimpses while people-watching and depicts them in her paintings as snapshots, to share that fleeting moment of connection we feel when we are witnesses to love. Whether it’s the love of a father and child, friends, lovers, love for animals, nature, home or the love of self, Alice encourages us to notice that love, in all its multidimensional facets, is often felt as recognition.
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open hearted vision of people who embrace life.” – John Lennon

Opening Reception: Thursday, July 11, 2013 from 20:00-22:00
Closing Date: Sunday, August 4, 2013
Bazel Gallery
1 Hashlah Street, Tel Aviv, Israel

About Alice Mizrachi
Alice Mizrachi is a painter and teaching artist in New York. Through painting, murals, printmaking and installations, Alice creates figurative work that depicts characters whose relationships and emotions reflect her perspective of the social environment. Alice seeks to spread empathy and compassion through site-specific projects that are positive visual responses to social issues that affect neighboring residents.

In her roles as artist and teacher, Alice explores art as a path for communities and individuals to heal through creative expression. She works to empower and inspire women and girls by elevating females to sacred archetypes in her art. And as a teaching artist, Alice extends her personal commitment to art as a tool for healing through hands-on creative projects that help others express their ideas about topics such as environmentalism, identity and community.
Alice co-founded YOUNITY in 2006, a women’s art collective that has provided a professional platform for hundreds of women in the arts through exhibitions, panel discussions, mural productions, and youth workshops.
Alice occasionally lectures at universities and participates in discussions on arts and activism topics; she also writes curriculum and leads staff-development workshops for arts programming. She has received numerous grants and has an ongoing studio residency in Manhattan.
Her artwork has been exhibited at Washington DC’s Museum of Contemporary Art and The National Women’s Museum. She is represented by Mighty Tanaka Gallery in New York and Bazel Gallery in Tel Aviv, and her work has also been shown in galleries around the world including Colette, Causey Contemporary, Fifty 24LA and Intermedia Arts.

3 upcoming shows

7 Mar

Hi all,

Its been a minute since I last posted- I apologize for the disconnect. I just moved my apartment and well we all know what it’s like to uproot your home and relocate it. Especially when you been in the spot for 8 years. My landlord raised the rent $600 in my Sunnyside, Queens neighborhood and thats when I realized- she’s nuts and I had to go! GREEDY SLUMLORDS- New York is filled with them. The positive thing is I got a dope new spot in LIC/ Astoria border right by the water and parks and in a community that I have done a lot of work in- Welling Court. My new landlord is a community organizer and activist and I can actually chill with him, what a relief!!!! So with that I think my move is a positive one and I am truly looking forward to building more with my new community. I am also excited for my long walks to the park and bike rides along the water to come!!!!

On a biz note- I have 3 shows coming up. The first is a show with @MightyTanaka who has been repping me for the past year or so- I enjoy working with Alex, he is good people. It’s important for me to work with honest people who are truly making things happen in our community and contributing to the support of artists who need it….

So heres the info for this show:

“Danger to the Darkness” enlists creative minds from all disciplines to share glimpses of those powers that shine light into the dimmest corners of our collective existence.The walls of the landmark Harlem brownstone will be lined with thoughtfully assembled, personal images of redemption and triumph, and whose manifestations are fundamental testaments to the fortitude and resilience of the human spirit.

The Heath Gallery family invites you to join in contemplation and support of an urgent cause – one that can often seem worlds away.

Proceeds from the sale of all exhibited artwork will be used towards creating a safer, more peaceful global community via The A21 Campaign.
