Irmari Nacht of Englewood will exhibit artwork in “Again! Recycled Artist Books and Collage,” a one-woman show in the Waltuch Gallery at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades, from January 4 through 30. A reception will be held on Wednesday, January 18, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Ms. Nacht’s work is composed of eight identical recipe books from the Terezin concentration camp, cut into swirls, spirals, and strips.

Ms. Nacht exhibits internationally and nationally; her work has been shown in every major museum in New Jersey and has been featured in solo shows. She has received two New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowships in sculpture, and a Puffin Foundation Grant for “Who Am I?”, an interactive project where the viewer becomes part of the artwork. The eight books of “In Memory’s Kitchen – A Legacy from the Women of Terezin” are copies of original hand-sewn copybooks of recipes that the starving women of the concentration camp put together.

For information, call (201) 408-1456 or email nbachrach@jccotp.org.
