The Art Of Resilience

ArtSpace Herndon is proud to exhibit the paintings, prints, and sculpture of Azriel and Irene Awret, holocaust survivors and co-founders of the art colony in Safed, Israel. This is a unique opportunity to view and purchase this art for the last time in the U.S. as the collection will soon be sent to the Awret gallery reopening in Safed.

These internationally renowned artists moved to Northern Virginia in the 1980’s where they continued creating art which captures the beauty and truth of everyday life.  Turning away from their own harsh experiences, the Awrets teach us, through their art, to be resilient and shake off events which could keep us from achieving a happy and meaningful life.
