Linda Friedman Schmidt of Franklin Lakes, a former long-time member of the Barnert Temple, will show her recently completed artwork, “Once We Were Hungry, Homeless, and Unwanted,” at Pollak Gallery at the Monmouth University Center for the Arts from January 21 to March 13. It’s part of a group show, “Access and Opportunity, Diversity and Inclusion.” There will be an opening reception on February 8 from 6 to 8 p.m., at the gallery, 400 Cedar Ave., West Long Branch.

“Once We Were Hungry, Homeless, and Unwanted” is an autobiographical artwork woven from Ms. Schmidt’s recollection of her first memories of encountering homelessness, hunger, and poverty as a child, coupled with stories she heard about her parent’s lives, intergenerational memories of the Holocaust, and the hunger and homelessness of the Jews in Europe during the Holocaust.
