French KissTEMPTATION – January 10 – Feb. 1  Ever since Eve bit the apple, humanity has been struggling with temptation. Should we give in or resist? This ancient and intriguing question inspired a show of LA artists that showcased painting by Debbie Winston Litoff and photography by Carol Kleinman. Featuring designer jewelry (which nearly always tempts) by Liza Shtromberg and interactive installations that challenged you to surrender.

 

 

DreidleThe third installment of THINGS WE PASS DOWN, looked at objects of Judaica that are obtained from family members before and “passed on” to the next generation.  In this show, Marilee Tolwin exhibited beautiful paintings of Judaic ritual objects.  Also displayed were heirlooms and their stories.  Some new art objects were sold –  new Judaica to be given to the next generation.
