Last week the annual Jerusalem arts fest Manofim kicked off, with rich pickings on offer around the city and across a broad spectrum of disciplines and styles. Art, naturally, conveys messages of various kinds. Some are simply personal takes on some topic or area of life, while others indicate a broader standpoint on events – taking in, for example, political and social issues. The “Women’s Section” exhibition, which opened at the Shelter Gallery in the Mekor Baruch neighborhood on October 24 and will run until November 27, clearly pertains to the more variegated ethos.The show, which is curated by Noa Lea Cohn, features several dozen works by young British-born painter Sara Cutler and seasoned Israeli-born counterpart Nomi Tannhauser. They are two very different artists from very different backgrounds. Cutler hails from an Orthodox family from London, while Tannhauser follows a non-observant lifestyle, at least according to the strict delineating religious-secular Jewish divide.
