Ketubah Artwork in Seattle Exhibit

In 2010 I made meaningful artwork for my high school friend Judith for her wedding to her partner of 26 years. They asked for cats, books, and teacups to be included. Kathryn is a watchmaker so the gears were just so apropos. I included their original wedding date of 10/10/10 at 10am seen as 10101010 in the artwork but fate intervened and the date was changed. The online site states the numbers are binary code to represent Judith's work with computers.....serendipity reigns supreme. The couple used the work for their wedding invitation and their thank you cards and then, following Jewish custom, framed it alongside their Ketubah (wedding contract). I am truly honored to have been able to do the artwork for them. I had no idea it would have such an honored spot in their commitment to each other. In 2012 the artwork and the Ketubah was included in a first ever nationwide exhibit of same sex Ketubot. I invite you to take a look through the gallery of images at the exhibit. There are some truly beautiful pieces of artwork symbolizing lives entwined and representing Jewish heritage in a wonderful tradition.
