Meet the Artist Reception

The exhibition opens with a reception Thursday, December 14 from 6-8 p.m. Guests will enjoy lite bites, cocktails and an opportunity to meet Moshé Y.
Originally from Israel, Moshé Y created “Bridges” to conceptualize the notion of coming together despite the fragmented and divisive state of the world today. The exhibition consists of pieces that emphasize the importance of finding middle ground as a way of transcending barriers and achieving harmony for all.
“We are beyond excited to share Moshé Y’s ‘Bridges’ exhibition with South Florida,” said ArtServe President and CEO Jaye Abbate. “We’ve dedicated the entire main gallery to the exhibit. The subject matter is so poignant that we wanted it to consume every sense as soon as someone walks through the door. Plus, much of Moshé Y’s work includes many pieces in a large scale format, so we needed enough space to accommodate the substantial pieces as well as the smaller, more subtle ones.”
Born in Jerusalem, Moshé Y spent his adolescence learning from well-known Israeli artists including Shmuel Akerman and Jacques Soussana. At the age of 25, he moved to London and studied techniques in the fine arts including lithography, silk-screening, etching, pottery, sculpting and drawing.
A year later, he moved back to Jerusalem and worked with Israeli artist Calman Shemi to learn how to translate his acrylic painting into large format soft painting. In the process, he gained an affinity for working with large format art.
In 1990, Moshé Y moved from Jerusalem to California where he continued exploring techniques in the arts and studied photography and graphic design. In 2011, he relocated to South Florida where he pursues his interest with metals, bronze casting and fiberglass sculptures.
