Fine art is always on display at the JCC.

The JCC Taube Center for Jewish Peoplehood mounts multi-media art shows four times a year, presenting both local and international Jewish artists.  These seasonal exhibitions highlight a variety of themes pertinent to the Jewish calendar, holidays, values, text, and traditions.

The exhibitions have featured work from prominent artists including Lawrence Kushner, Siona Benjamin, Laurie Wohl, Lauren Bartone, MIND the HEART!, Hillel Smith, and many others.

Exhibitions are well publicized and are enjoyed by all who visit the JCC.

Current Exhibit

Magical Thinking

An In-House Art Exhibition

 

This collection of works from over 20 contemporary artists explores superstitions in Jewish life, protective amulets, Jewish folklore characters, and symbolic imagery.

Black cats, horseshoes, wishbones, and mirrors are among the symbols chosen for exploration. Superstitions about childbirth, and protective amulets to ward off the “evil eye” and promote good fortune are popular motifs. Several artists explore characters from Jewish folklore like the Dybbuk and the Golem.

Works include oils, watercolors, acrylics, collage, paper cuts and photographs. Creative uses of media are also featured in this contemporary art exhibition.
