Manhattan’s Ceres Gallery presents “Visages Unframed: Faces from 16th Century to Today,” a new exhibition by internationally recognized artist Susan Sinek of Fort Lee, who along with her husband, belongs to Chabad of Fort Lee. Her artwork features many Jewish women. Susan, a lifetime member of Hadassah, was born in London, and studied and has shown her work across Europe, South Africa, and Hong Kong before she came to America.
In her new series, “Visages Unframed,” she created portraits using a unique technique of painting on many layers of Japanese paper, glued to canvas. The faces emerge from the surface using Chinese ink, charcoal, acrylic paint, pencil, gold paint, and gesso.
The show runs from February 4 to 29, with a reception on Thursday, February 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. The gallery is at 547 West 27th Street, #201, in Manhattan. Learn more about Susan Sinek at susansinek.com.
