Welcome to Art Showcase

Art @ Solel’s ART SHOWCASE features Richard Bloom Sculpture


Art Showcase, featuring art by Temple members, is currently showing an exhibit of metal sculpture by Richard Bloom. The pieces are available for viewing in the North Hallway (between the Library and the Social Hall) as well as in the entranceway to the synagogue. The show will be available through August 31, 2014. A “Meet the Artist” reception and Oneg will follow Friday night services on June 6 in the Social Hall. Richard will discuss the motivation and concepts revealed in his sculpture.

All works are for sale, and part of the proceeds will benefit the temple’s art scholarship initiative. Contact Richard Bloom at rabloom87@yahoo.com 480-209-6741 or Ira Thomas at irathomas690@yahoo.com 602-374-7885.

The Art @ Solel Committee was formed two years ago to manage the Temple's current art collection and to promote art as a community activity.

Art @ Solel is a committee dedicated to the preservation and advancement of art at Temple Solel.

  • An ongoing register of all art owned and/or on loan to the Temple is maintained by the committee. Documentation includes an illustration, history, donor(s), artist biography and estimated value.
  • Those works are maintained, prepared and displayed at various times within the Temple building, the objective of which is to provide our members with a pleasing and educational art environment. Printed folders and labeling document many of the works and displays.
  • Finally, the committee is involved in new art projects such as member shows, seasonal exhibitions, a sculpture garden and docent tours to enhance members' appreciation of the permanent and on-loan collection.
