Artists 4 Israel welcomes Elke Reva Sudin to our group
Elke Reva Sudin received her Bachelor of Art from Pratt Institute in 2009.
Her fine art has been featured in galleries including the Eden Fine Art Gallery (New York, NY), The Vivant Art Collection (Philadelphia, PA), Le Salon d' Art (New York, NY), 3rd Ward (Brooklyn, NY), and the Jack Shainman Gallery (Chelsea).
Recently, Elke investigated the Satmar Hassidic sect of Orthodox Jews in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, comparing the Satmars to the similarly insular Williamsburg community of Hipsters. Elke's curiosity about each group found expression in a graphic book, where illustrations accompanied articles. This book then expanded into a blog and then a large gallery show entitled, “Hipsters and Hassids.”
