“A DIALOGUE WITH COLORS”
National Council of Jewish Women/Los Angeles presents an opening art reception for the internationally renowned Ann Krasner. Born in Moscow, she was a young woman with talents that ranged from ballet to technical cybernetics — lucky for us, she also picked up a paintbrush. With her artwork featured in places like Paris, Switzerland, Sweden, New York and more, Krasner paints in a language that knows no borders. Her work embraces color and challenges convention. There will be a special piano recital by prodigy Benjamin Krasner. Sun. 3-6 p.m. Free. NCJW/LA Council House, 543 N. Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles.
