Vector Artist Initiative was founded in 2013 to facilitate partnerships between exhibiting artists and arts organizations interested in using artwork as an educational opportunity for community engagement.
Robin Atlas is a visual artist, printmaker, fine arts consultant and curator whose work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Canada. She creates contemporary visual midrash – the process of investigating Hebrew biblical and other sacred Jewish texts as well as halachic laws; adding her own artistic voice and vision to the ever-evolving anthology of commentary.
Her mixed media pieces combine dyed, manipulated and collaged fabric and other fibrous materials which have then been deconstructed and embellished with hand and machine embroidery, paper, paint, beadwork, trim and other elements.
Nancy Current has been a studio artist in Seattle since 1987, working on glass and paper using drawing, painting, monotype, and screen printing techniques. Her artwork visually interprets Jewish religious and cultural texts in the tradition of contemporary visual midrash. She exhibits nationally and in Canada, and has taught and lectured in the US, UK and Germany.
