Merzig News Clipping About Ednah Sarah Schwartz Art Exhibit
“Artists Exhibit Their Work” In the Public Library Merzig News Bulletin. Merzig. Exhibit opens on September 18.
The series of exhibits under the general title, “Artists Exhibit Their Work”, will open this season in the Public Library on September 18, with an exhibition of work by the Israeli artist Ednah Schwartz. The artist born after World War II, came to Israel in 1957, and is living in Kibbutz Kfar Blum. She began her art studies in Tel Aviv, and continued them at New York University. Her work shows the influence of the painter Rosenthal, who is responsible for the strong classical background – in contrast with many other kibbutz artists, who tend to give free play to their emotional experience.
Portraits and Landscapes: One subject which Ednah Schwartz keeps coming back to is the European Holocaust, even though she herself had not been through those terrible times. As to subject matter, one notices the accent on portraits and on landscapes. The preferred techniques are water colors, pastels, woodcuts and linoleum cuts.
This exhibit will be on view until October 17.
