Joel Schechter: An Artist’s View of the World

The USC Hillel Art Gallery is proud to announce the exhibit “An Artist’s View of the World” featuring the work of Joel Schechter. The exhibit will be on display September 10 – December 3, 2017. An artist’s reception will take place at the USC Hillel Art Gallery on Sunday, September 10, from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. All are welcome to attend.

An Artist’s View of the World will feature select colorful and abstract drawings from Joel Schechter’s bristol ink ‘Synagogue and Cathedrals’ series. This religious and architectural series depicts the dramatic soaring arches, beautiful windows, and mysterious shadows of synagogues and cathedrals around the world. In Dr. Schechter’s Buttered Toast ink series, Dr. Schechter expresses a world of violence and scary creatures whose darkness is interrupted by islands of tranquility. This series poses the questions, ‘How does each of us manage to live in a world filled with such chaos and madness?’ and ‘How does one achieve a sense of balance and tranquility?’
