ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Helen Bar-Lev was born in New York City in 1942; she has lived in Israel for 50 years.
She studied art at the Cooper Union in New York, and holds a degree in Anthropology from California State University, Northridge. Helen and Dolores Sheen, Executive Director of Sheenway School and Culture Center, met in Los Angeles in 1966, the birth of a friendship that amalgamated into chosen sisterhood. In 1973, Helen and her family immigrated to Israel where the Muse awakened her creative palette for art and poetry, having been dormant for ten years. She held her first exhibition in 1976; to date she has participated in over 100 exhibitions, including 36 one-person shows in Israel, Paris, London, The Hague, the USA and more. She and Dolores are more than excited about her first collection of Ghana paintings in miniature format...works in progress featuring life and living in the Volta Region of Ghana, West Africa, Dolores' ancestral homeland. There, in the bush village, Sasekope, another sister union lives and loves - Sheenway School and Culture Center - the first registered private school in the Volta Region. The Sheenway 'sisters' have never received government funding, depending on donations, volunteers, and dedicated staff to bridge gaps of striving community service.

Every stroke from Helen's hands blesses this distinctive collection - her gift to and for the land both she and Dolores love...GHANA!

Helen Bar-Lev is the Amy Kitchener International senior poet laureate; nominee for the Pushcart Prize (2013); recipient of the Homer European Medal for Poetry and Art.
After living in Jerusalem and the Artists Colony in Safed for many years, she now resides in Metulla, the northernmost town in Israel.
Sheen Educational Foundation benefiting Sheenway School and Culture Center will receive 60% of proceeds from auction.

"...our roots too entangled
to ever be severed,
our children sisters and brothers,
and we, like lionesses, mothers to them all..."

Excerpt from "Sisters of the Same Tree"

About Sheenway School and Culture Center

CREATE A FREE 32AUCTIONS ACCOUNT TO BID ON ART

Sheenway School and Culture Center is a non-profit 501 ( c ) 3 that has provided quality education in the South Los Angeles community for 50 years, and the community of Sasekope Ghana, West Africa for 26 years. Sheenway is a private day school/learning lab, youth enrichment center and living laboratory of learning and teaching for total education in a country schoolhouse setting. Sheenway School does not receive, nor has ever received, government funding while depending solely on contributions, partnerships, and volunteers. With your support, Sheenway School can expand and integrate online and virtual learning platforms - bridging the underserved Sheenway communities of two countries, via our EduTech Lab prototype. Challenged by COVID-19, effective teaching and learning has tested the viability of academia - we must augment the grand design of architecture for the future. It is therefore crucial to facilitate virtual labs, molecular workbenches, and other interactive simulations for innovative teaching and learning. Scholarships and student tech supports are also needed to amplify this undertaking,

The current state of education handicaps our youth with immobility and lack of teacher/student bond. The EduTech Lab includes campus pods and home-sessions when indicated. With your support, we can reach these new horizons - our goal is $50,000.00.
