Love, Maria – The Caregiver Behind the Woman in Gold

Come join us for a very heartfelt and personal story. On April 23, as part of the “Love, Maria” event, we will be showing award nominated film Woman in Gold. Gregor Collins, author of The Accidental Caregiver, will be present to speak about his experiences caring for Maria Altmann and to sign his book, available for purchase. During this event, from April 11 to May 6, “The Art of Resilience” exhibit will be on display to celebrate the work of Azriel and Irene Awret. A reception for the exhibit will be held on April 29, from 7-9pm. We hope you can join us for this time of remembrance.

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.
