Gabriella Spitzer is a New-York based visual artist and member of the board of Jewish Eyes on the Arts.
In the May 19 Salon, Gabriella presented a painting based on writing having to do with Mikvah, spiritual bathing rituals, in this case created for the purpose of gender transition.

Practically leaping out of her graduation robes, Gabriella arrived straight from the ceremony with her family, and shortly after presented her piece.

Reading a poetic passage about what happened before God created the world, Gabriella spoke about the transitions in her own life, the sense of creator and creation, of art and of self.

To read the source Gabriella presented, visit TransTorah.

  1. Posted on What resonates with me is the idea of gentitg those ideas that are flying around down on paper and into the hands of our readers. My partner and I have a long list of ideas. It’s gentitg them written. We started the new year off great with the sale of our novella. It’s the first of a four part series. We’re writing number two and then have to tackle numbers three and four. Then it’s on to the next idea. I think staying organized and being productive are the order of the day. Thanks for another fascinating post. I’m going to pass the link on other writer friends who I know would enjoy it.Best wishes to you for 2011Patriziaw/a Gabriella Hewitt
