Kaplen JCC seeks artists for its gallery exhibition

font size: +

The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly is looking for artists interested in exhibiting their work for the 2015-2016 calendar year. The JCC’s monthly art shows, featuring the work of painters, photographers, digital artists, and other creative visual artists, is displayed on the walls of the JCC’s Waltuch Art Gallery. The focus of the gallery is to exhibit thematically Jewish artwork or art produced by Jewish artists.

All exhibits include a meet-the-artist reception hosted by the artist, who buys food for the party through the JCC Cafe. The JCC provides coffee, tea, and paper goods.

All work on exhibit is for sale, and a portion of the proceeds goes to support JCC programming. To be considered for a solo exhibition, send a brief bio and artist’s statement, the title of the show, and its theme; three or four high resolution jpegs of the work that will be shown (and, if you have a website with images, include the URL), and the works’ price range.

A JCC committee that meets twice a year will select artists for exhibitions. Exhibits run from four to eight weeks. The JCC publicizes all shows and receptions in local newspapers and websites, as well as in JCC brochures and newsletters. The exhibits are open and art can be bought during the JCC’s business hours.

Send submissions to Ruth Yung at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). For information, call (201) 408-1408.
