TV Host Cognac Wellerlane poses for a photo-op at Documentary Screening of Artist George Schulman at Beth Sholom in Roslyn, New York
Art experts and special guests came to a very special screening of a film documentary about Artist George Schulman on November 17, 2015. Presently over 80 paintings of Mr. George Schulman’s work are being exhibited at the Judaica Museum in the Temple Beth Sholom complex.
The exhibit is curated by Bat-Shiva Slavin at 401 Roslyn Road in Roslyn Heights, NY and will run until November 27, 2015 and represents what Schulman calls “Mapping,” the style that took him decades to achieve.
Beth Sholom in Rosyln, New York is a warm and dynamic conservative, egalitarian congregation committed to exploring and expressing their Jewish identities through spiritual, educational, and social moments of communal connection. A house of prayer, a house of learning, and a house of community, Temple Beth Sholom nurtures personal development and social responsibility while promoting greater knowledge of their Jewish history and culture. For over sixty years, TBS has been caring for and engaging our congregants and community. Through their services, programs and activities they create sacred communal Jewish moments worthy of the Divine. Their team of clergy, educators and lay leaders are committed to making TBS a place where each and every member of their family can learn, grow, gather and celebrate together.
Painting since the age of four, classically trained Schulman can paint in any style. Touted with an eye for color and form, yet not satisfied with his early success, Schulman pushed to find his own voice different from all the rest. A spiritual man with Jewish roots. Schulman is also a gifted historian and consummate storyteller. Schulman’s paintings and collages share his, and the Jewish Peoples’, drive to slay dragons. His use of white has been inspired by the light he saw, as well as his grandmother’s voice, telling him it was not his time before being revived from heart failure.
Using a Classical Grid to format his Works, Schulman looks for the dominant shape found in his favorite Master Artists’ Paintings. Schulman’s Works are colorful, kinetic and at times visually tense. His viewers are drawn in and out of the picture plane. Schulman’s uses special oils and acrylics in his massive paintings. He makes his own stretchers and uses only the finest linen and canvas. Hand sewn paper collages are made out of fast food containers collected over a 2 year period.
