Ruth Weisberg: New Beginnings

March 25 — May 31, 2006

The exhibition at the Rutberg Gallery extends from a major 29-foot Weisberg mural, titled “New Beginnings,” commissioned by UJA Federation of New York, now installed at the entrance to its headquarters at 130 East 59th Street in New York City.

In this new series of large and small scale paintings and drawings, Ruth Weisberg expands upon the subject of this commissioned painted mural – themes of diaspora, hope, community, and new beginnings. Weisberg explores personal and collective history through layered images which express both time and memory.
