Opening Reception | Between the Lines: Bunny Burson & Roy Strassberg

Friday, August 26, 2016 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Please join us for the opening reception for Between the Lines: Bunny Burson & Roy Strassberg, on view August 26 - October 23, 2016.

Both Roy Strassberg and Bunny Burson’s works pull from memories and research of the Holocaust. As first generation American Jews with family stories from this haunting time, Strassberg and Burson’s marks contain a raw and arresting energy. Reading between those lines, viewers may investigate the deeply personal stories that begin to rise to the surface of the works. Here, marks become memories in service of tikkum olam – a Jewish concept translated as acts which might repair the world.
Funding for this exhibition is provided by Sheila Greenbaum and Gary Wasserman, Nancy and Ken Kranzberg, JoAnn and Ted Sanditz, Anabeth and John Weil of Pershing Place Foundation. All works of Bunny Burson courtesy of Bruno David Gallery. This exhibition is part of the St. Louis Arts Experience, a citywide arts collaboration from September 30 through October 16.
