Where the Past Meets the Future
The Art of Fay Grajower

Sat., July 2, 2011 - Wed., Sept. 28, 2011
Boston artist, Fay Grajower, provides insight to viewers about the second generation of Holocaust survivors through her art. The artist uses her acquired memories of her mother's and
siblings' experiences to work through issues of the past. Grajower commonly uses symbols and metaphors in her colorful, mixed-media artworks.
Fay Grajower studied at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA. and holds an MA in Studio Art from New York University. Her works have been featured in galleries and
museums throughout the U.S. and Mexico, including Boston, Washington, DC, New York, Morelia, Guadalajara and Mexico City. Grajower also exhibited in Lugano, Switzerland and in Berlin,
Bielefeld, Gera and Potsdam, Germany. She was an artist-in-residence in Florida, Israel and Germany and has several commissioned pieces including a painted sculpted glass installation
at the Jewish Community Center of Wilmington, DE.; a Holocaust Memorial Sculpture Installation at the B'nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton, FL. and an installation for The
International Women's Research Center at Brandeis University.

The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes
On view through Sun., Aug. 28, 2011
This exhibition is a collection of the best works of art from children's art competitions of the Terezin Memorial's Education Department in the Czech Republic. Its title indicates that the paintings are very special because the artists are young, 11-17 years old. As one views the particular paintings, it is seen that despite their youth, the children know exactly how to choose the subject to depict the theme of the Holocaust accurately, what color to use to express certain atmosphere and mood, and how to make the artwork more interesting. Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here. Despite all the terror, one can visualize a small glimmer of hope hidden in the pictures, hope actually being the theme of the last painting.

New Quilts from an Old Favorite Exhibit Comes to Dunedin Fine Art Center

Nearly everyone remembers sleeping under a quilt made by their mother or grandmother, and many of those quilts were made from time-honored traditional quilt designs. Today's quiltmakers were challenged by the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky to create original quilts based on the classic Sunflower block pattern. July 8 through August 21, 2011, the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC) is delighted to present "New Quilts from an Old Favorite 2010: Sunflower," an exhibit of the 18 finalist and winning quilts who responded to this challenge. These are not your grandmother's quilts!

Quilters from 11 U.S. states and Canada modified the Sunflower design in imaginative ways, providing a wonderful look at the skills, techniques and creativity of today's quiltmakers. Support for the contest is provided by Fairfield Processing Corporation, Janome America, Incorporated, and Clover Needlecraft Inc.. Local support for this exhibit is provided by Rainbow's End Quilt Shoppe.

DFAC pairs this up with another quilt exhibit entitled Portals. IQ Quilters, a Tampa Bay quilt guild has put together this challenge for their members. The "I" in IQ stands for Innovative, and their individual interpretations of the portals are sure to be that. Embellishments, mixed materials and media are not only allowed, but encouraged.

In addition to the 2 exhibitions, IQ Quilters have each donated small quilts to be auctioned in a silent auction format that will run throughout the exhibition. Proceeds will benefit educational programs at DFAC.

Admission for these quilt exhibits is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors/students and $3 for children under 12. Group rates are available by calling DFAC.

Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here. Despite all the terror, one can visualize a small glimmer of hope hidden in the pictures, hope actually being the theme of the last painting.

New Quilts from an Old Favorite Exhibit Comes to Dunedin Fine Art Center

Nearly everyone remembers sleeping under a quilt made by their mother or grandmother, and many of those quilts were made from time-honored traditional quilt designs. Today's quiltmakers were challenged by the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky to create original quilts based on the classic Sunflower block pattern. July 8 through August 21, 2011, the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC) is delighted to present "New Quilts from an Old Favorite 2010: Sunflower," an exhibit of the 18 finalist and winning quilts who responded to this challenge. These are not your grandmother's quilts!

Quilters from 11 U.S. states and Canada modified the Sunflower design in imaginative ways, providing a wonderful look at the skills, techniques and creativity of today's quiltmakers. Support for the contest is provided by Fairfield Processing Corporation, Janome America, Incorporated, and Clover Needlecraft Inc.. Local support for this exhibit is provided by Rainbow's End Quilt Shoppe.

DFAC pairs this up with another quilt exhibit entitled Portals. IQ Quilters, a Tampa Bay quilt guild has put together this challenge for their members. The "I" in IQ stands for Innovative, and their individual interpretations of the portals are sure to be that. Embellishments, mixed materials and media are not only allowed, but encouraged.

In addition to the 2 exhibitions, IQ Quilters have each donated small quilts to be auctioned in a silent auction format that will run throughout the exhibition. Proceeds will benefit educational programs at DFAC.

Admission for these quilt exhibits is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors/students and $3 for children under 12. Group rates are available by calling DFAC.

The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes
On view through Sun., Aug. 28, 2011
This exhibition is a collection of the best works of art from children's art competitions of the Terezin Memorial's Education Department in the Czech Republic. Its title indicates that the paintings are very special because the artists are young, 11-17 years old. As one views the particular paintings, it is seen that despite their youth, the children know exactly how to choose the subject to depict the theme of the Holocaust accurately, what color to use to express certain atmosphere and mood, and how to make the artwork more interesting. Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here.

New Quilts from an Old Favorite Exhibit Comes to Dunedin Fine Art Center

Nearly everyone remembers sleeping under a quilt made by their mother or grandmother, and many of those quilts were made from time-honored traditional quilt designs. Today's quiltmakers were challenged by the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky to create original quilts based on the classic Sunflower block pattern. July 8 through August 21, 2011, the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC) is delighted to present "New Quilts from an Old Favorite 2010: Sunflower," an exhibit of the 18 finalist and winning quilts who responded to this challenge. These are not your grandmother's quilts!

Quilters from 11 U.S. states and Canada modified the Sunflower design in imaginative ways, providing a wonderful look at the skills, techniques and creativity of today's quiltmakers. Support for the contest is provided by Fairfield Processing Corporation, Janome America, Incorporated, and Clover Needlecraft Inc.. Local support for this exhibit is provided by Rainbow's End Quilt Shoppe.

DFAC pairs this up with another quilt exhibit entitled Portals. IQ Quilters, a Tampa Bay quilt guild has put together this challenge for their members. The "I" in IQ stands for Innovative, and their individual interpretations of the portals are sure to be that. Embellishments, mixed materials and media are not only allowed, but encouraged.

In addition to the 2 exhibitions, IQ Quilters have each donated small quilts to be auctioned in a silent auction format that will run throughout the exhibition. Proceeds will benefit educational programs at DFAC.

Admission for these quilt exhibits is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors/students and $3 for children under 12. Group rates are available by calling DFAC.

The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes
On view through Sun., Aug. 28, 2011
This exhibition is a collection of the best works of art from children's art competitions of the Terezin Memorial's Education Department in the Czech Republic. Its title indicates that the paintings are very special because the artists are young, 11-17 years old. As one views the particular paintings, it is seen that despite their youth, the children know exactly how to choose the subject to depict the theme of the Holocaust accurately, what color to use to express certain atmosphere and mood, and how to make the artwork more interesting. Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here. Despite all the terror, one can visualize a small glimmer of hope hidden in the pictures, hope actually being the theme of the last painting.

July 8 through August 21, 2011, the Dunedin Fine Art Center (DFAC) is delighted to present "New Quilts from an Old Favorite 2010: Sunflower," an exhibit of the 18 finalist and winning quilts who responded to this challenge. These are not your grandmother's quilts!

Quilters from 11 U.S. states and Canada modified the Sunflower design in imaginative ways, providing a wonderful look at the skills, techniques and creativity of today's quiltmakers. Support for the contest is provided by Fairfield Processing Corporation, Janome America, Incorporated, and Clover Needlecraft Inc.. Local support for this exhibit is provided by Rainbow's End Quilt Shoppe.

DFAC pairs this up with another quilt exhibit entitled Portals. IQ Quilters, a Tampa Bay quilt guild has put together this challenge for their members. The "I" in IQ stands for Innovative, and their individual interpretations of the portals are sure to be that. Embellishments, mixed materials and media are not only allowed, but encouraged.

In addition to the 2 exhibitions, IQ Quilters have each donated small quilts to be auctioned in a silent auction format that will run throughout the exhibition. Proceeds will benefit educational programs at DFAC.

Admission for these quilt exhibits is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors/students and $3 for children under 12. Group rates are available by calling DFAC.

The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes
On view through Sun., Aug. 28, 2011
This exhibition is a collection of the best works of art from children's art competitions of the Terezin Memorial's Education Department in the Czech Republic. Its title indicates that the paintings are very special because the artists are young, 11-17 years old. As one views the particular paintings, it is seen that despite their youth, the children know exactly how to choose the subject to depict the theme of the Holocaust accurately, what color to use to express certain atmosphere and mood, and how to make the artwork more interesting. Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here. Despite all the terror, one can visualize a small glimmer of hope hidden in the pictures, hope actually being the theme of the last painting.

Fay Grajower studied at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA. and holds an MA in Studio Art from New York University. Her works have been featured in galleries and
museums throughout the U.S. and Mexico, including Boston, Washington, DC, New York, Morelia, Guadalajara and Mexico City. Grajower also exhibited in Lugano, Switzerland and in Berlin,
Bielefeld, Gera and Potsdam, Germany. She was an artist-in-residence in Florida, Israel and Germany and has several commissioned pieces including a painted sculpted glass installation
at the Jewish Community Center of Wilmington, DE.; a Holocaust Memorial Sculpture Installation at the B'nai Torah Congregation in Boca Raton, FL. and an installation for The

The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes
On view through Sun., Aug. 28, 2011
This exhibition is a collection of the best works of art from children's art competitions of the Terezin Memorial's Education Department in the Czech Republic. Its title indicates that the paintings are very special because the artists are young, 11-17 years old. As one views the particular paintings, it is seen that despite their youth, the children know exactly how to choose the subject to depict the theme of the Holocaust accurately, what color to use to express certain atmosphere and mood, and how to make the artwork more interesting. Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here. Despite all the terror, one can visualize a small glimmer of hope hidden in the pictures, hope actually being the theme of the last painting.
