The Architecture of Israel – Featuring Chaya Greenwald

Exhibit Dates: May 2 – June 14, 2024
Artist Reception: TBA

Artist Statement: My main inspiration comes from beautiful photos of Israel, the Old City streets of Jerusalem and anything that gives me an “Oh my gosh I need to make that into a painting” type of photo. I am a child of a Holocaust survivor. Seeing images of the old-time shtetl and days of simple Jewish life really bring out strong feelings and I want to get those feelings on a canvas to share with others.

Often artists create artwork based on trends and styles of the time, or they have one specific style of painting. I don’t have a ‘set’ style that defines me, which I think is unique in a sense that I can create so many different pieces and different styles of paintings. One feature I would definitely say you will find in each of my pieces is lots of vibrant colors, some with gold or silver leaf as well.

I also offer print options and semi-originals for a handful of my paintings. This means the original painting is digitally scanned and can then be printed to any size you want on canvas, metal, and archival high-quality water color paper. A semi-original is a print that I embellish with paint and or gold leaf on top to create a more original feel. It’s amazing what today’s technology can do to make a print feel original. I do also take commissions upon request.
