About the artist: In her vibrant, colorful folk-art paintings, Malcah Zeldis comments on social themes, celebrations, religious events and practices, and everyday events. She often includes portraits of historical figures, some of whom are her heroes or heroines. A self-taught artist who began painting in her late thirties, Zeldis is a first-generation American whose family emigrated from Russia. She grew up in Detroit, and scenes from her childhood comfortably tie into the fabric of urban life throughout America. She draws upon her experiences living in various Orthodox neighborhoods and the years she spent in an Israeli kibbutz to create brilliant paintings that capture the living spirit of Jewish tradition. Her work is widely exhibited and is in such collections as the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the American Folk Art Museum, and the Jewish Museum, New York.
