During their stay in Dusseldorf Ruth Sernoff and Asher Froelich presented a unique exhibition at the Atelier Am Eck, in cooperation with groups aiding refugees in Germany and in the city of Dusseldorf.
Atelier Am Eck is a gallery operated by the cultural department of the Dusseldorf municipality and is located within an installation that includes a number of exhibition spaces and artists’ workshops. The exhibition presented paintings by Ruth Sernoff and Asher Froelich together with works created by refugee children under the aegis of an initiative of the Dusseldorf municipality and aid associations with the purpose of providing support and enrichment to the children and easing their plight. Even before the exhibit several of them works had been sold.
The exhibition’s purpose was to raise funds for the refugees, and the initiative began during Ruth’s and Asher’s visit as visiting artists of the Ein Hod-Dusseldorf program.
During the course of their stay in the visiting artist studio, Ruth and Asher focused on paintings that illustrate the situation of the refugees with the intention of donating their works to assist them. They worked many hours producing a diverse and rich body of work that can be sold to the general public for this very worthy cause.
