Meet the Artist! Amy Fagin Presents: Hebrew Manuscript Illumination

November 13, 2016

Join Kolbo as we host artist Amy Fagin for an engaging presentation on the history of illuminated manuscripts. This event takes place Thursday, November 17th at 7pm at our store on 437 Harvard Street in Brookline. This presentation is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Learn about the technique that has evolved over thousands of years for creating illustrated ketubot, haggadot, megillot, and more. In her presentation, Amy will show us extraordinary images of these historical manuscripts from all over the world and across multiple religions, including Judaism, Islam, Christianity, and Buddhism.

Amy’s newest collection of small, meditative, watercolor pieces, entitled Visual Haiku, will be making their Kolbo debut at the event. These make a great gift and add a pop of color to any wall. For a sneak peak, click here.
