The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades’s Waltuch Art Gallery is seeking artists, photographers, and hobbyists of all ages and backgrounds to participate in the JCC’s center-wide “Israel at 70” celebration in April. To proudly acknowledge Israel’s 70 years of independence, the Tenafly-based JCC will hold a series of special events, programs, and activities. A month-long community exhibition in the Waltuch Art Gallery will showcase the JCC’s appreciation for Israel, its people, and its culture and history.

Artwork can be paintings, photographs, and mixed media works relating to Israel; the competition provides a great opportunity for local artists to see their work exhibited on the walls of the JCC. Exhibitors do not have to be Jewish to participate. All submissions must be in by March 15 for consideration.

For more information on gallery exhibitions or submission guidelines, call Nina Bachrach at (201) 408-1406 or email her at nbachrach@jccotop.org.
