Linda LevittFaces in Thread and Oil
the artistic creations of Linda Levitt of Livingston

WHEN: weekdays through November 5
WHERE
: B’nai Jeshurun, 1025 South Orange Ave, Short Hills

Linda combines the art of oil painting with sewing to produce three dimensional and free standing artworks. “It is an arduous process that I am completely in love with - the sewing machine becomes the brush,” said Levitt.  Many of her works are in private collections.

For 25 years, she owned Dining In, a retail store in Livingston which specialized in everything for the dining room, including silk flower arrangements for the dining table and fresh flowers for weddings and large parties. 

Her many-faceted career has taken her on a fulfilling journey including creative cooking, home design and fabric dyeing, as well as painting.  

“I realized early on that I loved to make things exciting, different and beautiful,” she said.
