On Friday afternoon, March 26, the day before Passover eve, a gala event celebrating the latest exhibit by artist Batia Shani took place in her studio at 6 HaPelech Street in south Tel Aviv.

Shani created thousands of decorated envelopes, combining embroidery, sewing, and painting, and mailed them to addresses all over the world, some real and some fictitious. Over the years, the envelopes were returned to the sender, which Shani devotedly preserved. In the exhibition entitled "Signed & Sealed," for the first time, Shani presents the collection of envelopes she has accumulated over the years.

Among those invited to the opening event were collectors, creators, and artists, who were given a private tour with the artist.

Among them were Yaara Keydar, the curator and fashion researcher, who accompanied the establishment of the exhibition and wrote the text describing the collection. Also in attendance were Rakefet Rusk-Aminoach, Bushi and Rami Mardor, artists Yuval Shaul and Hadar Marom, curators Tamar Dresdner and Hannah Kupler, and owner of the nearby Gordon Gallery Amon Yariv.

Guests also included director Ran Tal, chef Assaf Granit, artist and ceramicist Iris Nesher, and others.
