FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
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
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.

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:

Bazel Gallery presents Alice Mizrachi in a solo exhibition entitled Through My Lens
August 2012, Tel Aviv, Israel — This summer, Alice Mizrachi presents a series of new works that explore the artist’s vision. Through My Lens is an observation of people, objects and characters the artist sees on the streets and how she interprets them.
Curated by Bazel Gallery, this exhibition features work from a native New York street artist, Alice Mizrachi with a focus on figurative works. From her travels and people she meets on the street, Alice Mizrachi has captured the essence of each person shown with a raw sensitivity to color and line. Mizrachi’s vivid artworks interprets a magnified lens through which she observes individuals.
“I am inspired by things I see on the streets; objects, personalities, faces, and ways of life. I aim to capture the emotions of the individuals I see with a spontaneous rhythm” .
Alice Mizrachi is a Queens based artist, curator, educator and community organizer. With a focus on the figure abstracted through color, line and pattern, Mizrachi’s work draws from an inner reserve of spontaneous raw emotion. As a master of materials, grounded in painting and printmaking, her respect for the mediums she works with is as important as the charged imagery she creates. She has exhibited work in galleries and museums worldwide including Powerhouse Gallery, Colette, Fifty 24LA, Crewest, Intermedia Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art in DC, and The National Women’s Museum in DC and most recently in solo shows in Paris and Tel Aviv. With strong ties to the urban art world, Mizrachi’s early work focused on the vibrant tranquility of city life and earned her profiles in niche publications Giant Magazine, Juxtapoz and Square Rootz. In addition to work on 2D surfaces, she has painted murals worldwide and begun to delve into sculptural objects made from found materials. With over 10 years of experience as an Arts Educator, Mizrachi has merged all of her interests as co-founder of the YOUNITY Arts Collective since 2006. The all-female urban art collective produces a variety of creative enterprises annually including exhibitions, panel discussions, mural productions, and youth workshops. Mizrachi is also a graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York City.
