Jennie Mohl Fine Art Pop-Up Gallery Briefly Lands in Teaneck

This week Jennie Mohl Fine Art hosted a pop-up gallery in Teaneck featuring an incredible selection of works by prominent and emerging Israeli artists.

Some of the works gracing the walls of the pop-up gallery came from a co-op of all-women Charedi artists, each possessing their own unique style. They meet once a month to paint together and offer each other feedback while artist Kira Wolf offers them guidance.

A painting by one of the artists, Michal Shmuel, illustrates a scene which, at first glance, seems like a typical still life. But upon closer examination, a common thread emerges between the objects—that they are the Shiva Minim, the Seven Species, which is also, fittingly, the title of the painting. Other works by Shmuel include her captivating “Geometric Menorah” and another called “Jacob’s Dream,” in which, although abstract, one can clearly make out a ladder and clouds.

French-Israeli artist Hanna Fluk’s painting “Rhythm of Life,” which Mohl describes as “a fun, playful piece,” depicts “the rhythm of Jerusalem life” and showcases the different types of people going about their lives along a music staff.

From art photographer Yehoshua Aryeh comes “Hidden Lights,” an olive tree that sits perfectly against a mesmerizing sky in shades of violet, fuschia and orange. A series of four beautiful square pictures from Tzfat hung on another wall. As you gazed at the images, you felt yourself being transported there.

An intricately painted landscape by Russian-trained artists Ana Zarnitsky was also on hand. Painted from a unique vantage, new details seem to emerge every time you look at it.

There were works by another member of the co-op, Tehila Zion, whose gorgeous paintings feature brilliant colors and incredible textures; and works by Fedida, whose Kabbalistic-inspired pieces bring in themes from sefer Bereishit. A fun and funky painting from Hamsa artist Shlome J. stood at the entrance, while Kira Wolf’s “Windows of Jerusalem” gave the observer a new way to glance at the City of Gold.

There was a print-on-canvas piece by Yael Harris Resnick called “The Daughters of Tzlafchad.” Resnick makes it a point to highlight female faces in her artwork. In another corner stood her multi-colored “HaTikvah” piece where the lyrics to Israel’s national anthem cascade down in a rainbow of colors.

Several works by well-known artist David Gurstein were also on display, including a limited-edition clock and a miniature urban sculpture of a Tayelet. Featuring his whimsical, brightly colored designs painted on metal, Gurstein’s artwork is available in a wide range of price points, from his high-end limited edition series to the more affordable line called Gurstein Designs.

The pop-up is continuing through Saturday night, December 17.
