Stearn and Levin began by put-

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
Among the artists who contrib-

"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

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.
