Selected drawings by Andover artist Joan Nyman, entitled "The Jewish World of Eastern Europe - Images From the Past," are part of a current exhibition of artwork by the faculty of the DeCordova Museum School, running through the end of August at the Center for the Arts in Natick, Mass.
The drawings by Joan Nyman, reflect a sense of life found in the towns and villages of Eastern Europe before they vanished in the Holocaust. "Because her drawings resonate with people of all ages and backgrounds, she has brought her drawings into educational institutions as part of anti-bullying and teaching tolerance programs," according to a release. "Her Jewish artwork has been shown widely in galleries, public and commercial venues, as well as at her website, joannyman.com."
Nyman holds degrees from Wellesley College and Columbia University.
