“A Tree in a Field” A Texas and Israel Connection
LuminArte Gallery in the Dallas Design District opens its doors to the public for a special presentation of the cross cultural project, “A Tree in a Field.” Inspired by the works of the Hebrew poet Nathan Zach, this collaborative exchange between Israeli and Texan artists focuses on the connection between man and nature, and on underlying themes of energy, compassion and unity.
“A Tree in a Field" consists of art presentations at three venues, as well as a sculptural installation and a performance art piece. In addition to the LuminArte Gallery exhibition, alternate selections of artwork are displayed at the new Alon USA and Texas-Israel Chamber of Commerce offices, which also host the collaborative 20 ft. tall “Tree” installation. During LuminArte’s November 30th reception, a multimedia documentary will chronicle the November 3rd performance by Doron Polak and Michael Lazar, depicting impressions of bodies in sand beneath a human silhouette of dark, splattered sediment from the Dead Sea. The performance art presentation serves as a commentary on memory, mortality and the natural cycle of life.

Jamie Labar and her expert team of curators work to express a range of perspectives while developing a standard of talented creative expression.
