ABOUT THE ARTIST
Chuck Edelson was born in Chicago on Oct. 8th 1929. His childhood was overshadowed by the Great Depression and World War II. His first loves were books, movies and music. A high school teacher encouraged him to develop latent art skills. After a short an unsatisfying university experience, driven by news of the holocaust of the Jews in Europe, he left the U.S.A for a pioneering life in the new state of Israel where he and his family farmed the land. Along with his work as a farmer he continued his creative side painting and sculpting mainly themes from the bible and the holocaust. Now retired from farm work he still sculpts, draws and of late has begun to write poetry after few and far between attempts in the past.
