A Night of Art, Wine, and More – Part 2


Last evening, May 7th, Igal Fedida‘s gallery (1482 First Avenue, New York, NY – Tel: 310.466.3916) was filled with people, delicious cheeses, fruits, and good wine. People were coming in throughout the evening, enjoying the art, talking or listening to Igal explain what his art expression is about, and tasting the food and wine.kosher-scene-copyright-copy

Among those visiting the gallery were people of every age group, in many cases you would never have expected these individuals to have much in common with each other, yet all were attracted by Igal’s art. At moments there were as many as 60 people filling the narrow gallery.

…presented two of Anderson’s lines of cheeses – the brand new Sincerely, Brigitte. and Natural & Kosher. Three of the six Sincerely, Brigitte flavors were represented (Garlic Basil, Tomato Olive, Parsley Chive); while I loved all three, but, my favorite was the Parsley Chive because of the subtle flavors herb flavors. The majority of the people, however, seemed to prefer the Tomato Olive. All three flavors disappeared as the gallery visitors gobbled them up, together with Natural & Kosher‘s selection of three goat cheeses; my favorite, among the latter, was (you guessed it!!) Fine Herbs.

The wine selections consisted of Ben Ami Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Alfasi Cabernet Sauvignon; the eight bottles did not last very long, a fitting testimony to their delightful flavors.

It was a wonderful evening of art, wine, cheese and superb conversation.

A Night of Art, Wine, and More


This coming Tuesday, May 7th, Igal Fedida Fine Art (1482 1st Avenue, New York, NY) will host an evening of presentation and conversation. Igal Fedida will talk about his art and his vision. Kosher wine, kosher cheese, fruits and more will be served. Igal’s art, fuses his Torah and mysticism knowledge and combines them into a painting, which (while abstract) is easily understood as a vision of the various facets of creation. As I wrote in these pages before:

He is a modern painter with a message that extends beyond time. His colors are bold, Hebrew letters appear almost invariably, his brush strokes reveal a lot more about the subject matter than do the works of far more photo realistic artists. In short, though he paints Jewish art, his paintings speak to Jew and non-Jew alike, his works stir up emotions beyond what the eyes can perceive. While looking at his creations, you see the colors dance, you see the colors explode; no definable shape is discernible, yet everything that exists or ever existed is in them.

He recently moved his gallery to New York’s Upper East Side, after many successful years in Miami, Florida. Below is a video of the artist creating, one of many on his youtube channel.

Hope to see there!
