Their Mother’s Story, Told by Daughters of Textile Artist Esther Nisenthal Krinitz: Art as Remembrance of a Remarkable Life

April 28, 2019    
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Viewing of the exhibition at 6:30 pm will be followed by a 30-minute film, then a talk by Esther’s two daughters.
The exhibit will remain on display through May 27, 2019. If you would like to visit at another time, please contact Deborah Wenger in the office to make arrangements.

Many people have asked questions about the artist in our current Gallery exhibition.  Esther Nisenthal Krinitz’ life, remarkable work, and how the originals were produced is a fascinating story of its own. On Sunday, April 28th, her two daughters, Bernice Steinhardt and Helene McQuade, will be our guests to give us their remembrances of their mother and answer all those questions.
Bernice Steinhardt and Helene McQuade are the co-founders of Art and Remembrance, a non-profit arts and education organization inspired by the art and story of their mother. Recognizing the power of their mother’s art to change hearts and minds, they created Art and Remembrance as a testament to their mother’s legacy and a means to share her work and to inspire others to share their experiences as victims of war, oppression, and injustice. Bernice is the co-author (with her mother, posthumously) of Memories of Survival; she and Helene were producers of the award-winning film, Through the Eye of the Needle: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz.
The evening will begin with a viewing of the exhibition followed by the 30-minute film Through the Eye of the Needle: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz. After the screening, Bernice and Helene will talk about their mother and answer questions from the audience.
The book, Memories of Survival, will be for sale. Bernice and Helene will be happy to inscribe them.
