Artist Linda Dubin Garfield will present her collection Behind the Scene/Seen: An Artistic Response to the Holocaust, Nov. 13, 2012 at noon in the Penn State Harrisburg Library’s Morrison Gallery as part of the college’s Center for Holocaust and Jewish Studies 2012-2013 events line-up. Combining traditional printmaking, mixed media, and digital technology, Garfield’s series of 12 photomontages present issues of reality vs. illusion, past vs. present, and history vs. future in post-Holocaust Eastern Europe. This event is free and open to the public and a kosher food reception will follow.

Garfield, based in Philadelphia, Pa., has exhibited her works and presented around the world. Behind the Scene/Seen: An Artistic Response to the Holocaust, her most recent work, documents locations and Holocaust losses in Hungary, Austria, and the Czech Republic.

“The scenes from travel near and far inform my work. It is what I remember most about the place that stays with me,” said Garfield. “Rather than representing every detail, I am evoking the hidden and revealing the atmosphere, creating visual memoirs.”
