Meet Artist Shony Rivnay at Gallery Open House on November 10

The Jewish Federation of Cleveland announces the Cleveland premiere of the works of Israeli artist Shony Rivnay with the exhibition “Unfolding Nature: Dancing Through Waves.” Rivnay is an interdisciplinary Israeli-American artist based in Tel Aviv, who works in various media including painting, sculpture, video, installation, and performance. He has exhibited solo shows in numerous locations around the globe including New York, Berlin, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, and Venice. He holds a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, Israel.

This exhibition, “Unfolding Nature: Dancing Through Waves,” consists of a series of vibrant paintings, filled with characteristic biomorphic shapes that have been deliberately exaggerated and infused with harmony. The choreography of the work is laced with intense forms and unexpected colorations. The work is based upon the visual images derived from other disciplines, particularly that of music. The compositions are precisely correct and Rivnay succeeds in his efforts to find order in abstraction.

All are invited to hear from Rivnay and curator Erica Hartman-Horvitz at a free open house on Sunday, November 10 from 1 – 3 pm in the Roe Green Gallery at the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Building (25701 Science Park Drive in Beachwood). Artist talks will be at 1:15 pm in English and 2:15 pm in Hebrew. Registration is not required. Walk-ins are welcome. For more information on this exhibition, visit www.jewishcleveland.org.

This exhibition is presented by the Cleveland Israel Arts Connection, a program of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. It is sponsored with support from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
