Meet the Artist Reception for Rita Sklar

November 12, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join the Art Committee as we present the Artist Rita Sklar

Long-time Kehilla member Rita Sklar will show her award-winning wildlife paintings and paintings of people in the Fireside Room.  You may have seen her painting “Generations of Women” honoring women who have kept Judaism alive in the home.  It is hanging outside the sanctuary and was a gift to the congregation.

Rita’s concern for the environment moved her to paint a series of paintings of birds and other wildlife.  Conservation efforts have brought back the California brown pelican, the peregrine falcon, and the bald eagle.  Sklar’s paintings of children and families are a celebration of diversity.  Eight of these paintings have been purchased by the Children’s Hospital at Stanford.  A celebration of the artwork at the hospital is expected to occur before the end of the year.

All the paintings will be available for sale and a portion of proceeds supports Kehilla’s annual fund.

The show will run from November 6th through December 31 in the Fireside “Gallery” Room
