Launching ILartTO and first Call for Artists
I have just launched with my friend, ceramic sculptor Shaked Kaplan, and new initiative we named ILartTO (which sounds really nice when you say it, pronounced ilartto, and stands for Israeli artists in Toronto).
Our main goal is to enhance artistic opportunities for Israeli artists in Toronto and North America. And we have many ideas on how to do it!
Our first project is an Art Exhibition, that will take place in April 2011, at the Holy Blossom Temple in Toronto. We have published our new Calls for Artists, inviting Israeli and/or Jewish artists from all over the world to submit artwork for the show. The name of the show is “But My Roots Are On Both Sides Of The Sea”. We love this concept of being connected to our roots in Israel even while living in Toronto. And this is the theme of the exhibition.
If you also know anyone who might be interested in this participating at our exhibition, please forward this information to them. Much appreciated!

Credits: “But my roots are on both sides of the sea” is a line from Leah Goldberg’s song “Pines”, known for its music and performance by Achinoam Nini (Noa).
