We were fortunate to have artist Estelle Rozinski heading an active program from 2014-2016, during which time we presented a number of projects under her direction.
"Tikkun Olam - a multimedia exploration" was presented twice, once at North Shore Temple Emanuel and once at the Waverley Library, contributing to intercultural understanding through artistic interaction. The events included examples of work from the Jewish, Aboriginal and Korean communities. themezzuzahproject takes several forms and includes events for seniors at the Montefiore, and an event focussing on the Egyptian community, entitled "Exodus 2".
Estelle has exhibited as a ceramicist, printmaker and photographer. In 2001 she was featured as the lead ceramicist in the Australian Ceramics and Pottery magazine. Estelle studied ceramics at the National Art School East Sydney, and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales, majoring in printmaking. She is also a passionate curator:
"As a curator I feel I have a responsibility and commitment to the community. I believe that art, like music, has an ability to take people on a journey of the heart and to move them beyond words. The visual landscape has the power to be inclusive of ‘the other’ and as such it has a role to play in the forging of friendships, the weaving of ties between community groups and the ability to facilitate greater knowledge, understanding and healing."
