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.
Publications which have featured Alice and her artwork include The New York Daily News, Time Out NY, New York Magazine, Huffington Post, Marie Claire, Juxtapoz, Haaretz, and Street Art NYC, among others. She is a 1999 graduate of Parsons The New School for Design in New York City.

“THROUGH MY LENS” Recap- Tel Aviv 2012

12 Sep

My trip to Israel this summer was eye opening and enlightening. I discovered things about my family history that I have been searching for. I found out my dad’s side of the family migrated to Israel from Cordoba, Spain during the Spanish Inquisition. I met some family members who I havent been connected to in over 15 years and I visited places my parents lived and worked in Tel Aviv.  I decided to use this new information I gathered  in my second solo exhibition at Bazel Gallery. One spot I was particularly inspired by was a place near Rehov Hamasger where my dad worked in the 50’s. Currently this place is facing demolition and it once was the heart of the auto industry. My dad worked there for many years before migrating to New York. I was enamored by the tin shacks and the semi demolished walls that possessed so much character and history. I collected bits and pieces of the walls that were being torn down. After returning to this location numerous times I came across this wall- the very last wall standing in this area. I felt like I was collecting pieces of my dad’s history that were about to disappear forever. The significance of this place and remaining wall was included in my installation at the gallery. It is a mixture of  pieces I collected from this site as well as old frames I found at markets and antique frame shops. check out the pics below.

THE ACCOKEEK FOUNDATION
Me and Diana took a trip out to Maryland to visit The Accokeek Foundation. We had a meeting with some of the AMAZING folks who are protecting and fighting for our food rights. This YOUNITY research trip was necessary since our next fall YOUNITY show focuses on food sovereignty. See pics below…

SING FOR HOPE PIANOS

This year I was invited to participate in the Sing For Hope Piano Pop Up Project. My piano is currently located at Washington Market on Greenwich Street and Reade Street, downtown NYC. : See pic below for my piano:) AND GO CHECK MY PIANO OUT UNTIL JULY 2nd. I also taught a workshop with the ART U! students to create their own pianos.. so inspiring! I am honored to be teaching with Sing for Hope year round starting August.

These professional visual artists have volunteered alongside community members, Sing for Hope Art U! students, and master technician Fred Patella to bring their 88 individual Pop-Up Pianos to life. And once the Pop-Up Pianos hit the streets, hundreds of Sing for Hope Volunteer Artists from NYC’s great stages will bring the pianos further to life with their Pop-Up Concerts!

Artist Melanie Edwards play on my piano with a charming young audience.
