This week’s cover is a painting entitled “Esther,” created by award-winning artist Beth S. Goldberg.
A resident of Bloomfield, Goldberg is an Artist Elect at the West Hartford Art League. Her work has been exhibited at the Salmagundi Club and the Allied Artists in New York, as well as at the Nassau County Museum and the Sumner Museum in Washington D.C. In addition, her paintings are included in several prestigious collections, including that of the Dupont Corporation.
Her painting, “Keeping the Beat,” was a winner in the National Platform Show in the special Category of Mixed Media and was exhibited all across the country, including the San Diego Art Expo, the Miami Art Expo, Coachella Art and at the art expo in New York.
A sought-after speaker on the subject of art, she recently delivered several presentations on “Biblical Art” at the Mandell Jewish Community Center, including one attended by more than 100 people.
Active in the Jewish community both in Connecticut and on New York’s Long Island, where she previously lived, Goldberg currently serves as Sisterhood vice president at The Emanuel Synagogue in West Hartford, where she also sings with the congregation’s choir.
A distinguished alumna of Hofstra University, where she received a second Masters in Art Therapy degree, she continues to write monthly social action articles for her former synagogue newsletter on Long Island.
As a participant in an intergenerational series coordinated by the Mandell JCC in partnership with West Hartford’s Hebrew High School of New England (HHNE), she enjoys what she refers to as “an active dialogue with students.”
