WHERE: Waltuch Art Gallery, 411 E. Clinton Avenue in Tenafly, NJ

The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is seeking artists, photographers, and hobbyists of all ages and backgrounds to participate in the JCC’s center wide “Israel at 70” celebration in April. To proudly acknowledge Israel’s 70 years of independence, the JCC will be holding a series of special events, programs and activities and the month-long community exhibition in the Waltuch Art Gallery is one way that the JCC will showcase its appreciation for Israel, its people, and its culture and history.

Artwork can be paintings, photographs, and mixed media works relating to Israel, providing a great opportunity for local artists to see their work exhibited on the walls of the JCC.

  • Exhibitors do not need to be Jewish to participate.
  • All submissions must be in by March 15 for consideration.
