BODY AND SOUL”, an exhibition of paintings by Kathryn Jacobi, Margaret Lazzari, and Galya PillinTarmu will be on view at American Jewish University’s Platt and Borstein Galleries from January 31, 2010 through April 28, 2010. The public is invited to meet the artists at a free opening reception on Sunday, January 31st from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Kathryn Jacobi, inspired by the painters of the Northern Renaissance, describes herself as a contemporary realist artist. Her powerful work is an expression of her relationship to the inhabitants of her world.

Margaret Lazzari, art faculty member at University of Southern California,often uses an autobiographical source in her drawings and paintings. She finds that her self portraits lead toward understanding and self discovery.

Galya Pillin Tarmu, born and educated in Chicago, spent many years in Israel. Her paintings reflect a world that has undergone estrangement, where sometimes the grotesque plays an essential role. Through metaphor the figures reveal her pre-occupation with the human condition.

American Jewish University is located at 15600 Mulholland adjacent to the 405 Freeway, in the Sepulveda Art Corridor near the Skirball Cultural Center. The galleries are handicapped accessible and parking is free.
