The Zabronskys

Esther, Henry, and Leo Zabronsky are

native of Israel. The Zabronskys bring their own individual style and personality to this show, however their mutual influence is easy to see. This would be their first show as a family. They bring different points of view and different styles but, most of all they hope to bring joy to your life.

Henry, an avid photographer since early age, also picked up painting; first, oil on canvas and now works with color pencils on paper. His ideas and attention to detail are what separates him from his wife, Esther and their son Leo.

Leo considers himself a balance between both his father, which is tight and cartoon like illustrator and his mom, which has more of a free flow brush strokes. Leo's art is influenced by music, landscapes, color and most of all people.

Esther is showing her long time love for biblical characters as she celebrates the women from the biblical time.
