Straddling Circumference...The Art of Linda Ekstrom

Price: $25 + shipping

Featuring essays by Judy L. Larson and Leah Ollman.

Word is central to Linda Ekstrom's work; in her altered Bibles and cut-paper icons of female poets and saints, new meaning reveals itself in the deconstructed text. She taught at the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara for over two decades, until her retirement in 2022.  Among other notable achievements, Ekstrom was chosen to serve on the committee to select art for the new Los Angeles Cathedral, Our Lady of Angels because of her background in liturgical art. This catalogue features translucent vellum pages that echo the sensual fragility of Ekstrom's work.

Her connection to art making, rooted in drawing, has at its core a profound yet unpretentious relationship with nature and spirituality.

Rembrandt and the Jews: The Berger Print Collection

Price: $20 + shipping

Featuring an essay by Dr. Lisa DeBoer.

The relationship Rembrandt had with the Jews of Amsterdam is a remarkable story. Most were Sephardic Jews – refugees from the Inquisition in Spain and Portugal. For many generations these Jews had been forced to deny their religious legacy, but in Amsterdam they were free to reclaim traditions and return to their Judaism. Rembrandt lived in Amsterdam’s prosperous Jewish neighborhood. In Rembrandt’s interpretation of Protestant Old Testament narratives, Rembrandt consulted Jewish theologians for a nuanced perspective of these familiar subjects. He also painted and etched portraits of prominent Jews.
