We are delighted to announce that Lynn and Pat Patton Grimes, in memory of their parents, Marilyn and Buddy Patton, donated a marvelous piece of art to the Temple.
The work, a woven fiber mosaic, was designed and constructed by a Cuban-American Jew, the now deceased Jose′ Augustin Fumero. He had a studio in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.
A graduate of the Fine Arts Program at Cooper Union, New York. Mr. Fumero had lectured at the Penland School of Crafts, North Carolina. His works have been widely exhibited, and can be found in a number of museums and private collections.
The piece is a welcome addition to our beautiful Temple. It is entitled Festival of Lights, and is hanging in the Dave Hall Social Hall.
