"Group Show" opens at the Mendenhall Sobieski Gallery in Pasadena this Saturday (05 Feb) featuring
"The Story of Isaac" -
Learn more about Isaac and Abraham (his father, the guy with the ax) at these sites:
The birth (and near sacrifice) of Isaac
Bio of Isaac and also Ishaq) - pretty cool how Isaac's story is within the Old Testament, the Torah, and the Quran.
The Story of Isaac and Rebekah - first four paragraphs detail how Abraham and Sarah spoiled him rotten as a child (well, besides the whole 'near sacrifice' event)
And finally... lyrics to Leonard Cohen's tune from his 1969 album, Songs From A Room.
(All the Sunday school classes i was forced to attend as a kid, world religion courses i took in college, and having a roommate who idolized Leonard Cohen are finally paying off...)
"Pop Pluralism" opens the same day at NYC's new Jonathan LeVine Gallery (formerly Philly's Tin Man Alley) - no image posted of Shag's piece as of Thursday AM.
