Debby and Larry Klein are the curators of the newest exhibition at the Gotthelf Art Gallery, San Diego Center for Jewish Culture:

Shmata Nouveau: Textiles through the Wringer
Curators: Debby and Larry Kline
September 7-October 29, 2006

Opening Night Reception: Thursday, September 7, 2006 • 7:30 p.m.

The Jewish connection with textiles is ancient, rooted in ceremonial cloths and religious garments, blossoming into the clothing and fashion industry. Shmata, literally "rags" in Yiddish, recognizes the humble beginnings that allowed tailors and designers to create livelihoods from textiles. Shmata Nouveau investigates this rich context and examines how these histories are embraced by contemporary artists Carol Hamoy, Debra Olin and Miriam Shaer.
