Evening with artist Gary Rosenthal set for Nov. 5 at Temple Beth-El

Gary Rosenthal welding metal sculpture Gary Rosenthal welding metal sculpture Community members will get a chance to meet sculptor and Judaica artist Gary Rosenthal, and create their own Rosenthal inspired piece at an “Artful Evening for Adults with Gary Rosenthal” on Saturday, Nov. 5 at Temple Beth-El in St. Petersburg.

Rosenthal has been sculpting in welded metals since the early 1970s. Together with a team of talented craftspeople he creates one of the most popular and unique lines of Judaic art in the country. Combining copper, brass, and steel with brilliant fused glass, the Gary Rosenthal Collection has a contemporary style rooted in tradition. His inspiration comes from the rich history of the Jewish people, who believe it is a blessing – a mitzvah – to make beautiful, functional, art.

Work from Rosenthal’s collection has been presented to presidents from Jimmy Carter, to Bill Clinton, to Barack Obama and celebrities as varied as Bette Midler, John Travolta and Ben Stein. It has been seen worldwide in many fine galleries, private collections, and museum shops including Smithsonian’s Renwick Gallery, Corning Museum of Glass, American Craft Museum, B’nai B’rith Museum, The Jewish Museum, Skirball Museum of Culture, and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.

The event begins at 6 p.m. will include tapas, beer and wine. Pieces from Rosenthal’s collection will also be available for sale. The temple is located at 400 S. Pasadena Ave., St. Petersburg.

RSVP online immediately at or mail a check to the temple office. The cost is $50, with price applicable to art and babysitting is available for $10.

In addition to the evening with Rosenthal, the artist will work with Beth-El’s religious school students on Sunday, Nov. 6.
