Sheryl Intrator (Urman), is an artist, curator, art historian, lecturer and teacher, who has exhibited her work throughout the United States and internationally as well. She is active in numerous art organizations including Salute to Women in the Arts, The Jewish Art Salon, and the New York Artist Circle. As a series painter, she experiments with a variety of materials including paints, resins, glazes and gold leaf on wood or other surfaces to bring her work to life. She created Art For Learning, LLC., a vibrant art business that has been in operation for more than 20 years, which incorporates programming, art lectures, and enrichment classes for all ages. She is also the resident Art Lecturer for the L’Dor VaDor program at Ahavath Torah in Englewood, where she is a member.

Evolving as an artist is important to me, whether it is through experimenting with new materials, new techniques or new artistic themes,” says Sheryl. “I am always drawn to Jewish themed art and subjects that explore contemporary issues of our times in new ways that attract a broader audience. My latest focus is creating Ketubahs, an inspiration that began when my children were getting married.”

The Waltuch Art Gallery is a community space that exhibits thematically Jewish artwork, or art produced by Jewish artists. All gallery exhibits and receptions are free and open to the community, where JCC membership is not required. Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday, 9 am - 10 pm; Friday and Sunday, 9 am – 5 pm; closed Saturday and Jewish holidays.
