National Arts Club, Gregg Galleries

USA United States of America
The Magna Mater exhibit is a vibrant reflection on women of mythology,
history and literature. The paintings in this exhibition include Leda and the Swan, Cleopatra, Alice in Wonderland, The Pieta,
Sheherazade, Eve and other sisters of Womanhood. Raviv draws from many different cultural traditions to highlight the inner
strength that women throughout history and literature share.
Ilana Raviv is an accomplished Israeli-American artist who has exhibited her works in the United States, Europe and the Middle
East in various galleries and museums. Her works are woven into rhymes and tied up in a geometry of poetic expression, which
a handful of artists refer to as Synthetic Realism.
Seeds of Peace (www.seedsofpeace.org) is proud to announce its cooperation with artist Ilana Raviv on a unique exhibition of
Raviv's new work: Magna Mater, (the Great Mother). Since 1993, the non-profit organization Seeds of Peace, has brought
together 1500 Arab and Israeli teenagers from the Middle-East to its summer conflict resolution program in Maine. Selected by
their governments and destined to become their nation's future leaders, these youngsters represent a new generation commited to
ending the violence that has plagued their region and creating real peace with their neighbors.
Half the profits of each sale of art will directly benefit Seeds of Peace, a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
