“Adagio,” a recent painting by Rachelle Weisberger of Englewood, will be on display at Brother Kenneth Chapman Gallery at the Iona College Arts Center from March 2 to April 2, as part of a group show, “Female Gender Identity and Equality.” An opening reception and gallery talk is set for Thursday, March 26, from 2 to 4 p.m.
The exhibit is sponsored by the New York Society of Women Artists, a professional association of painters, sculptors, and graphic artists that was founded in 1924. Ms. Weisberger is an active member of the society’s board. The exhibit explores women artists’ perceptions of identity, persona, social roles, political environment, and gender expectations –the artworks are the product of each artist’s experience as it relates to the subject of gender identity. Ms. Weisberger’s geometric-inspired canvases evoke psychological and spiritual themes through an exploration of color and space.
Ms. Weisberger also is the author of “Biblical Beauty: Ancient Secrets and Modern Solutions.” She is a member of both the East Hill Synagogue and Congregation Ahavath Torah in Englewood. A lifelong supporter of Israel, she is affiliated with Amit, Emunah of America, Hadassah, and AIPAC. For more information, go to rachelleweisberger.com.
The gallery is at 715 North Ave., in New Rochelle.
