“A unique exhibition by Israeli artist Rae Stern called “In Fugue” opened last week at the Belger Crane Yard Studios and continues through Jan. 4, 2020. It features porcelain portraits of Holocaust survivors, including some from the Kansas City area. The artist will return to the area to speak at this year’s community Kristallnacht Commemoration, Thursday, Nov. 7, at the studios.

The exhibition focuses on the elusive and ephemeral nature of memory as both a personal and universal phenomenon…”
