Massachusetts artist DEBRA OLIN presents Every Protection – Exploring Pregnancy and Childbirth in the Jewish Pale of Settlement

This is a studio visit and preview of artwork that is scheduled for exhibition at the Eldridge Museum in NYC. The artwork is inspired by an ethnographic questionnaire distributed throughout the shtetls in the Russian Pale of Settlement between 1912-1914 by S. An-sky. Every Protection explores the questions that explore pregnancy and childbirth.

A visual poet, Susan May Tell received recent artist fellowships to The MacDowell Colony and Yaddo. Her work is in the Smithsonian Museum’s Samuel Wagstaff Collection; her Oral History and Catalog of Works were acquired by Columbia University. Tell’s photographs appear in solo museum and university exhibitions, as well as scores of brick-and-mortar galleries coast to coast. Tell also had a celebrated 25-year career photographing in more than 20 countries for pre-eminent publications including the New York Times, Time and LIFE Magazines.

Debra Olin is a printmaker who has shown in exhibitions across the U.S., Canada, France, Poland, Serbia, South Africa, and Cuba. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Boston Public Library, Temple Israel, Brookline, MA, YIVO Institute, NYC, The DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA and the Harvard Art Museum, Cambridge, MA.

This project was organized for the Jewish Art Salon, co-sponsored by Art Kibbutz and JADA Arts.
