Within the framework of the exhibition

works of art that Winkler has fashioned over the past years will be presented throughout the gallery. The instalments are made of stone and steel, among which are powerful monumental statues and three dimensional wall reliefs, as well as engaging photographs documenting three decades of reservist experience. The exceptionally complex masonry combined with the unique cuts of rare stone that characterise Chen’s work, take center stage in the new exhibition.

“For three decades I have felt within me the deep need to express to the world the unique and exceptional service that these everyday heroes go through. The turbulence that each reservist experiences when switching back and forth between service and military life is an experience that can only receive its full expression within art. The opportunity to fuse these two worlds of art and the IDF is a dream come true. This gallery is the culmination of years of artistic contemplation how best to portray to the wider populace the true, human visage of these unique and unsung heroes.” (Chen Winkler)

The Gallery is engaging and open for adults, children and families!

Cultural and Leisure events

The world of the reservist meets the citizen through a wide range of subject matter and arouses within us a variety of thoughts and feelings.
We have orchestrated for exhibit – goers events that present a variety of vantage points illuminating the world of a reservist.

Crowdfunding

For such a project, we’re not asking for a donation – but rather for partnership. Full partnership in the enormous gratitude that reservists and their families deserve in return for their exceptional everyday sacrifice.

We invite you to take part in initiating this exhibit and to create with us this unprecedented event in Israeli culture and the art world. We invite you to declare proudly alongside us:
“Thank you! Your service is not taken for granted.”

Your donation will enable us to expand the amount of artwork, speakers, exposure, and content of the event so as to emphasize the importance and level of our appreciation for the reservist duty – in addition to the gift baskets that active reservists attending the exhibition will receive.

The event is in partnership with the Achai Foundation which provides homing for at risk youth and Lone Soldiers, helping them to integrate into communities. The foundation organises activities and seminars for the soldiers and youth while creating a connection between them and leading businesses interested in dedicated, long term manpower. 10% of all proceeds of the funding campaign will be donated to the Achai foundation.
