This exhibition celebrates the publication of Irene Awret's memoir, They'll Have to Catch Me First: An Artist's Coming of Age in the Third Reich, recently published by Dryad Press and the University of Wisconsin Press. Known widely in Israel for her paintings, ceramic sculptures and, with her husband Azriel, ceramic murals, she has had many solo shows in Israel and the United States. The Awrets helped found the Safad Artists' Colony in Israel. Since 1968, they have lived and worked in Fairfax, Virginia. This exhibition is co-sponsored by the Fall for the Book festival.
