There’s an interesting show up at the JEA right now that y’all must check out.
Ching Levy is a local Savannah artist who began her career on on rice paper using traditional Chinese brush strokes and has evolved into a unique, delicate style that incorporates Eastern and Western influences. She’s won awards all over the place and I just love her colorful, kind aesthetic:
A colorful flock gathers at the treetop
Singing in unison celebrating freedom
Hand in hand, living in one space
With united hearts and combined strengths for the earth
What I’m wondering is how such a talented Chinese Jewess has escaped the Yenta this long.
Ching Levy is Jewish, right? Related to the Levy’s Jewelers Savannah mishpocheh? Somehow?
Or has El Yenta Boy’s latest obession of all things Asian tricked me into a hopeful game of Jewish geography?
