New Art Classes
With Ruth Lenk
Wednesday Mornings from October 2018
We are delighted to introduce our new art teacher Ruth Lenk. For over 30 years, she has worked in the field of Art, creating in-house graphics for McDonnel Douglas Astronautics Corporation, designing publications for The Jerusalem Post, teaching elementary school Art in Azerbaijan and Israel, or running workshops for the underprivileged in South Africa. Creating Art has been more than her career, it has been her passion and she would now like to share that passion with Netanya AACi members.
Classes will be both for those for those without any artistic background, those who want to improve their skills and for experienced artists who just want to have some fun. The course will cover the basic elements of art, focusing on line, color and composition, using a variety of mediums and techniques.
To find out more join Ruth for an orientation meeting at 9.30am on Wednesday 10 October and classes will begin on Wednesday 17 October.
Members NIS 60 per lesson payable monthly

Lynn Leon Ross
On display until 8 November
Lynn Leon Ross (nee Ison) was born in Tynemouth in the north-east of England in 1947. Lynn studied art in Newcastle upon Tyne from the age of 16 and this is where she gained her MA in Fine Art.
She has a daughter and grandchildren who live on the Golan in Israel, and a so n with family in the north of Scotland. She made Aliyah in 2010.
Lynn's artwork spans a lifetime and includes black and white montage photography, pen and ink drawings, and more recently colored images from the Israeli coastline.
The early large black and white photographs have stark relevance to the current feminist movements. The drawings question the relationships of those who live in the land of Israel. Historical references can be seen in Lynn's 'Heads' series which allude to the Belgian Surrealist artist Rene Magritte's 'Les Amants' - the Lovers.
Lynn has exhibited widely in the UK and Israel.
Details of opening event to follow.

Diti Lean Quilt Exhibition
On display from 14 November
Diti was born in 1940 in Kibbutz Kinneret, in the Jordan Valley.
Diti’s quilts are impressive, stylish and attractive. She draws her inspiration from the magnificent sights and sounds of the environment in which she grew up. From a young age she felt drawn to work with all kinds of different materials, imbuing these artistic creations with a deep love of nature. She combines a range of colors with different shapes, lines and dots until the desired effect is achieved.
Diti has 3 children and 7 grandchildren and currently lives in Beit Bekfar, Beitan Aharon.
She has participated and exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions in Israel, the USA and internationally and was named prizewinner in the World Quilt Competition, 2011.
We are honored that Diti has agreed to hang her works at Netanya AACI for our members to enjoy and thank Sue Pel Or for all her help in arranging this exhibit.
