Calman Shemi Fundraiser
The Flamingo Clay Glass Metal and Stone Gallery is honored to offer an unusual piece of art donated by Jewish philanthropist Bob Born, inventor of the marshmallow candy PEEPS, to help raise funds for the ongoing programs of the Flamingo Clay Studio. The work is inscribed to Mr. Born on the back and will be available for purchase during the Art of Judaica exhibit and sale which opens Thursday, November 9, at Flamingo Clay Glass Metal and Stone Galleries, 15 S. J Street, in downtown Lake Worth. Free admission and free street parking.
The colorful metal wall sculpture is thought to be one of the earlier works by artist Calman Shemi, sculptor and painter, born in Argentina in 1939 now living in Israel. A graduate of the School of Sculpture and Ceramics in Mendoza, he was a student of the Italian-Argentinean sculptor, Libero Badii, and the German-Israeli sculptor, Rudi Lehman. In 1961 Shemi settled in Israel and joined Kibbutz Carmia, of which he was a member for twenty years.
Shemi explains, “All of the art that I create is full of optimism and beauty. That’s all. Simple, very simple.”
During the past eighteen years Shemi has held more than seventy one-man shows in the U.S., Japan, Germany, Spain, Belgium and Israel. His works can be seen in many public and private collections around the world, including numerous cruise liners.
