    Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael - the triumvirate of High Renaissance art – are considered to be three of the greatest artists in history. Keenly aware of each other’s works, ideas and reputations, they were intense rivals. But, together they defined a new, dynamic, and psychologically incisive approach to art.

    With Italian Renaissance Culture Professor Kenneth Bartlett.

    Members of the Pomegranate Guild showcase 19 of their textiles pieces in this group show. 

    “…and you shall teach them to your children”

    It began with her son’s Bar Mitzvah, a stamp, and a needlepoint design for the atarah. With limited resources and no Google, Phyllis Spivak asked her sister and friends if they were interested in sharing their love and learning of Judaic arts. After an afternoon of tossing around ideas and cookie recipes, they decided to place an ad in the CJN. Twenty-five people from across the community came together.

    Operating since 1982, the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Textiles, Toronto continues to offer artists the opportunity to come together, encouraging people of diverse textile-based practice and interests and all skill levels. The mandate was clear: to be inclusive; to research, teach and promote; to provide a space for artists to share and learn, and to appreciate each other's handiwork.
