In recognition of Jewish Disabilities and Inclusion Awareness Month, celebrated in February each year, the Waltuch Gallery at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is hosting “Art for All,” its annual art exhibition, which features the artistic talents of a wide range of people in the community. This year, more than 220 pieces were submitted from 13 different schools and programs, including participants in the JCC’s Guttenberg Center for Special Services programs. Works include framed drawings and paintings, ceramics, sculptures, 3D printing, and photography. Each piece showcases the creative talents of differently abled children, teens, and adults. The exhibit is on display through February 28 with a free opening reception on Sunday, February 9, at 1 p.m.  

“Art for All” celebrates not only the creative, artistic talents of these individuals, but also the spirit of inclusion that we here at the JCC pride ourselves on,” Shelley Levy, director of the Guttenberg Center for Special Services, said. For more information, call Ms. Levy at (201) 408-1489.
