The Gallery @ Mayyim Hayyim presents

Nigun | Notations on Prayer
Works by Shelby Feltoon, Stacy Friedman, & Emily Mogavero
September 16 – January 9

A nigun is a melody sung without words. The tune, repeated over and over during worship services and around the Shabbat table, becomes a form of prayer.

Printmakers Feltoon, Friedman and Mogavero create visual counterpoints to the nigun through repetition, pattern, and abstraction.

Presented in partnership with the Jewish Arts Collaborative
