KOH Art Gallery Presents Renouned Local Artist

Please join us on Sunday, September 26, 2010 at 4 p.m. for the opening and reception for artist Sam Liberman. Mr. Liberman will speak about his work and answer questions.

Sam Liberman has been painting colorful art work for over 35 years. He now works primarily with pastels, while also fashioning a number of oils each year and drawing on an almost daily basis.

His work is primarily landscapes, including seascapes, skies, mountains, flowers, swamps, architecture and almost any outdoor setting you can imagine. In the past two years he has also been painting figures on a regular basis.

Sam's work has been exhibited in over 50 competitive national and international art exhibitions. In June, 2009, he had a one person exhibition at The Butler Institute of American Arts, probably the top national venue for pastel artists in this country.

For a preview of his work, please visit his website at: http://samlibermanart.com

His work will be displayed at the KOH Library and Cultural Center through November 3, 2010. All work (originals and prints) is for sale, with a percentage going to the KOH Library and Cultural Center.

September Book Club Meeting

Please join us on September 21 st at 7 PM to discuss "Isaac's Torah", by Angel Wagenstein.

Bulgarian author and screenwriter Wagenstein devotes his powerful novel to an affable Jewish tailor from a small town in Eastern Europe who survives the reigns of Hitler and Stalin. Wagenstein himself escaped from a concentration camp and was saved from execution when Soviets entered Bulgaria. Half a century later, he creates self-effacing narrator Isaac Jacob Blumenfeld, threading Jewish jokes throughout the narrative not only to sweeten the bitter material but also because they encapsulate the humanistic foundation of Isaac's philosophy. Isaac's mesmerizing voice charms through every disaster, and engages and delights the reader without distracting from Wagenstein's profound insights into life's absurdities.

Simone Clay will facilitate the discussion.

We look forward to seeing you.
