Exhibits are presented in two locations: The Isaacs Gallery, which is located on your right just past the Osher Marin JCC front desk, and the Kurland Lounge, which is the room on the far left when you enter from the Lobby. Both areas are open during regular Marin JCC hours.
Current Exhibit Through June 1:
Porter Creek: A Portrait of Home.
The Osher Marin JCC is proud to host Porter Creek: A Portrait of Home. This is a photographic exhibit that seeks to tell the story of the destruction, loss, renewal, and hope of Camp Newman, the beloved local institution whose Santa Rosa location was destroyed in the Tubbs Fire. The exhibit is divided into two parts. The first is a set of prints that document the initial damage and subsequent regrowth of the land. The second is a series of prints selected from the hundreds made on the grounds of the charred library.
The exhibit and photographs were conceived of and created by Lily Gottlieb, artist and the Regional Advisor, NFTY Southern California, in direct response to the devastation of the Tubbs fire. Elements of the exhibit were first presented to Camp Newman staff and campers as a way of allowing the community to grapple with the trauma of the fire, and as a tool for the teens to learn about their capacity for resilience. This is the first public exhibition of these images.

The Spaces Between
An Exhibition by Maya Gelfman & Roie Avidan aka Mind the Heart! Project
The Osher Marin JCC is delighted to present The Spaces Between an exhibit of photographs that document public works created by Israeli artists, Maya Gelfman and Roie Avidan aka Mind the Heart! Project. The images document the time between 2017-2019, as the artists journeyed across 42 states on an all-encompassing experiment with serendipity. The highlight of the exhibit is a site-specific, one of a kind piece: a mural done in the signature technique of “drawing” on walls with tangible materials such as yarn, foam and felt. The artists will be creating the installation from Monday, June 10-Tuesday, June 11th. The public is invited to watch and engage with the process.
