Artist & Educator
about the artist
Sonia is a graduate of Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary, and was a Drisha Institute Arts Fellow. Sonia and her mother, Nina Gordon, began their intergenerational partnership as participants in the Temple Emanuel Artists’ Beit Midrash in NYC. They studied Jewish texts together and created collaborative artwork in response to the texts. Today they combine their skills and passions to create ceramic blessing and mindfulness bowls, and clay and wool sculptural artwork. Sonia and Nina have exhibited their work in group exhibits in NYC and Philadelphia, including an annual exhibit at the Jewish Theological Seminary.
