Sensing Art, the magnificent project will go on without me. Hadera mayor has decided to close down the "Hadera's Aritsts House", managed by Dr. Anton Biederman, where I had a couple of years ago my exhibition "To Float Between the Wires".The reasons are probably political. Anton is identified with the previous mayor... So, at the last moment I find myself with no place to display my work. I have been working on it for a year and now, nothing.

Today I met again Artist Veronica Elran. Over a year ago I was invited by Veronica to join a special project, "Sensing Art". The Idea is to create Art available, also, to non seeing people. Note, not Art for non seeing people but Art that non seeing people could also enjoy without feeling someone did something special for them! Veronica is the initiator of the entire project that will include 3 exhibitions opened around the country, lectures and more.
Veronica liked my project which is to create a very visual text using Braille and also a cipher for seeing people so they will also work to understand the written words...

Tzipi Tal is a friend and a graphic designer. I have placed my new Showcase in her very good hands so that the book I publish will look as good as it should. I have been learning during this process the significance of fonts, and a few tricks of the trade. The most important lesson was that when you need something professional, go to one. Don't save money on professional assistance. Thank you Tzipi.

Preparations for the "Tie" exhibition are proceeding well. Today I met Aviva Aviel, my friend and curator at IDC "threads of Thought" exhibition. I showed her what I was planning for July August, and invited her to be my curator for the exhibition.
The invitation was followed by a warning that the exhibition might not be realised this year because of plans for renovating the Gallery. We are all in the dark about plans by Netaya Municipality but I have decided to br optimistic and have everything ready.

January 28, 2015
My son is a student at the Thelma Yellin High school. Majoring in Jazz music he is part of a unique school which everybody would wish for his kids. Every year, around January, the entire school takes a break from the normal curriculum, for the "Festival". The three week Art Festival is dedicated to the Arts, and the kids spend their time, working on and performing, according to what they learn: Classical Music, Jazz, Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre and Cinema. As a part of the Festival, the school brings lectures for the students. I gave one today about Wire Art and what it means for me to be an Artist.

After moving to Herzliya, last October, I have decided to join Herzliya Artists Association. I am a member of the Netanya Artists association and of the Nationl Plastic Arts Association. There is too little support for the Plastic Arts from the government, and the munucipalities tend to follow that line. Herzliya seems to support the Arts more than the usual, with an established and active Gallery, which is the "Artists home", a Museum for Contemporary Art, and another Gallery minutes from where I live.
