After twenty years in production, this 35 minute, innovative, multicultural, multidisciplinary, multilingual educational film for kids of all ages will be shown in two events, March 10 (Edgemar Center for the Arts, Santa Monica), and March 14 (CSUDH Loker, LSU Ballroom). Both events are free of charge.
Reading the Landscape combines science and art in a magical voyage around the world following the migratory patterns of humankind. We follow five forms identified in nature that are present in alphabets universally, ancient to modern, and show that these forms were chosen ubiquitously as they mirror neurons and neural processes of perception and cognition.
While traveling around the globe, viewers experience immersions in cultural diversity that demonstrate unique beauty and richness while simultaneously affirming that we, as humankind, are fundamentally more alike than we are different.

In anticipation of Art on Paper in NYC this year, Gilah was invited by Master Printer Judith Solodkin of Solo Impression, Inc. to conceive experimental art which would engage Judith’s innovative digital sewing machine. As Gilah has been painting on papyrus since 2014 in addition to working on canvas, they determined that she would bring papyri and other materials to work with in her shop in Riverdale, NY. As sewing was to be an additional medium she also brought distressed antique Tibetan jacquards. By using a combination of different media, her work opened into unexpected and new avenues.
All of Gilah’s new collaborative artworks will be shown at Art on Paper, Pier 36, 299 South Street, New York City, March 7 – 10.
At this event Solo Impression will also be representing artists Louise Bourgeois, Javier Barrera, Whitfield Lovell and William Tillyer.
November 11 – December 23, 2018
Opening Reception: Nov. 11, 2-5 p.m.
Curator: Jim Morphesis
Featured will be the painting Choice, 2010, acrylic on canvas, 36″ round
