ISRAEL AT 70 is a month-long art exhibition in April showcasing more than 80 works of art by 26 local artists who have created art that reflect their appreciation for Israel, its people, and its culture and history. The exhibit includes an exciting and inspirational array of paintings, photographs, and mixed media works, curated from an open call to artists that encouraged everyone with a passion for Israel to participate. The end result is a colorful, must-see community art celebration.

“This exhibit celebrates our community’s love of Israel through the arts,” says Nina Bachrach, JCC Director of Arts and Culture Development. “We’ve brought together an incredible community of artists who are excited to spark the imagination of our community and to explore the cultural arts in an exciting way.”

The Waltuch Art Gallery is a community space that exhibits thematically Jewish artwork, or art produced by Jewish artists. All gallery exhibits are free and open to the community, where JCC membership is not required. Some, but not all, artwork in this special exhibition is available for purchase. A portion of the proceeds will support invaluable cultural arts programming at the JCC. Gallery exhibits are a part of the JCC’s Patron of the Arts Program, engaging our community in diverse and inspiring cultural arts experiences.

Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday, 9 am - 10 pm; Friday and Sunday, 9 am – 5; closed Saturday and Jewish holidays.For more information on gallery exhibitions contact Nina Bachrach at 201.408.1406 or email: nbachrach@jccotp.org.
