A selection of paintings and drawings from my Shalom/Salaam series will grace the walls of this new gallery in Kensington, MD.  Highlighted are the specific medieval mystics who helped bring together the heart of Jewish and Islamic spiritual worship.  Personages include the Baal Shem Tov (d. 1760), Rabi'a (d. 801), Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi (d. 1240), Moses de Leon (d. 1305), Rum (d. 1273)  and many others.  Portraits are accompanied by a panel explaining how the mystic of the one faith worked with or influenced those in the sister religion.
