another duality: It would be new
and modern, yet voice the hope of
thousands of generations: the yearn-
ing for peace (many of the chamsahs
are decorated with peace symbols or
words of peace).
Stearn and Levin began by put-
ting out a call to artists through
word of mouth, Facebook, Craig's
List, by posting signs at art supply
stores and at colleges, as well as on
art blogs. In less than two weeks,
the gallery received more than 100
chamsahs.
"We heard from all different kinds
of people — professional artists,
students, even children:' Stearn says.
The very first entries offered a
glimpse of the diversity that was to
come. One chamsah had a marbled
design of blues and purples; another
pictured a woman in pink, with the
chamsah encased in a frame. A third
artist sent "a red triptych, with a
theme of the burning bush," Stearn
said.
Among the artists who contrib-
uted a chamsah is Abby Stybel of
Berkley.
"This was an amazing opportu-
nity and a great idea for an exhibit,"
she said. "I loved the idea that every-
one received the same blank slate, so
to speak, and then we each designed
whatever we imagined, using any
medium we desired.
"I'm just putting the finishing
touches on my chamsah and look
forward to seeing it at the gallery."
All the chamsahs will be for sale,
with half of the profits benefiting
the gallery and will be on exhibit in
both the upper and lower levels.
