Sara Harwin’s work draws on the ancient tradition of illuminated manuscripts and encompasses large panels and hanging mobiles that use strong jolts of color, sacred imagery, pattern, and movement to achieve an innovative blend of visual and textual commentary on Jewish life and thought. An exhibit of illuminated manuscripts on loan from Mt. Angel Abbey, Mark O. Hatfield Library, Willamette University and John Wilson Special Collections, Multnomah County Library accompanies Harwin’s work. Exhibit on display February 5 – April 26, 2014.
