Sylvia Winstein Emeriti Arts & Crafts Exhibit

Dream KR

For one day every May, the Sylvia Winstein Emeriti Arts and Crafts Exhibit has transformed the California Room of the Faculty Center into a gallery of earthly delights. UCLA Emeriti and their spouses are invited to show their original productions at the show. Newly retired exhibitors are encouraged to participate. The event is a high point of the Emeriti year and culminates with a celebrated buffet, an epicure's delight.

In 2003 the Emeriti Arts & Crafts Exhibit was renamed the Sylvia Winstein Emeriti Arts & Crafts Exhibit to honor Sylvia's decades long dedication to this event. Her talent and energy as Chair shaped the art show into a beloved institution. Sylvia Winstein's enthusiasm and love for the artists and their work remains in happy memory.

Artist's Statement

Most of my works are two- or three-dimensional collages that integrate several different media: acrylic, watercolor, oil, modeling paste, wood pieces, canvas pieces, cloths, found objects, and other materials. I paint on canvas, paper, or plywood board, depending on the characteristics and materials I use for the third dimension. I consider color and composition to be the crucial elements of painting and try to create beauty in a non-figurative style. Beauty and harmony, I believe, are still crucial elements in contemporary art.

I have an enduring interest in classical music - not only in itself but also as it relates to the personality of the musicians. In several dozen portraits of classical music composers, from Hildegard de Bingen to György Kurtág, I want to capture the soul of each composer through colors, composition, and form.”
