Raffle: Ted Jaslow’s Painting “Stoopwork”Ted Jaslow, our very own UUOCC artist, has once again very generously donated an original painting for our benefit. The painting, “Stoopwork,” is executed in acrylics on canvas and is 22” x 30” framed. It is valued at $2,000 so this is a rare opportunity to obtain the work of an established and well-known artist to add to your collection or to begin a collection of your own. It is on view at UUOCC.Mr. Jaslow was born in Brooklyn, New York, the grandson of a Russian woodcarver. He was initially interested in sculpture, and learned how to draw while traveling the New York City subway to the High School of Music & Art by drawing the other passengers. He believes, along with Ingres, that "drawing is the conscience of art." Having started his studies
in sculpture, it was only later that he turned his attention
to two-dimensional art, and he now spends all his time with
painting and graphics. He has been described as a humanist,
people being the major subject matter of his paintings, which
are currently executed in acrylics on canvas. Ted has a
lifelong interest in the work of lower income and immigrant
people. “Stoopwork” offers us a colorful glimpse into the
back- breaking work of harvesting our food. His works are
valued from $800 to $5,000. For more information about
Mr. Jaslow and to view his work, visit his website at www.tedjaslow.comThe tickets are $10 each and the drawing will take place following the service on Sunday, September 14, 2014. The proceeds will benefit the Unitarian Universalist Ocean County Congregation (UUOCC).Raffle tickets are available from UUOCC.Email your request to email@example.com or call 732-244-3455
