Visual artist Rob Calvert opens “Witness” Exhibition at Temple Adas Israel 28 April 2019




In association with Holocaust Remember Observance, Rob Calvert will exhibit his six-piece topical series at Temple Adas Israel Gallery Space in Sag Harbor. Ann Chwatsky’s selection for this year’s exhibition marks the first opportunity to see these works.
 
Calvert made the assemblages in response to his 2016 visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland to bear witness to the Holocaust. Overwhelmed by the visit, he writes, “My need was not to erase, correct or undo things but to respond with measure equal to the experience.”
  
Opening Night Exhibition and reception is 28 April from 5 to 7pm. and runs through May. Public is invited. The synagogue and gallery are located at the corner of Atlantic Ave. and Elizabeth St., Sag Harbor. The gallery is open by arrangement. Call the Temple at (631) 725-0904. For more information, email Ann Chwatsky at annphoto@aol.com.
