“Conversations with Myself,” photographs by Jo Ann Chaus, is on display through September 30 at the Waltuch Art Gallery at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades. A meet-the-artist reception is set for Thursday, September 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“The images in this exhibit reference female characters from my past, both known and unknown,” Ms. Chaus said. “They serve as memoires, both personal and collective. My intention is to create a metaphorical mental bridge between them and me, then and now, and to express the struggles, the searching, the heaviness, and the responsibilities that come with being an adult, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a woman.”

The Waltuch Art Gallery is a community space that exhibits thematically Jewish artwork, or art produced by Jewish artists. All gallery exhibits and receptions are free and open to the community; JCC membership is not required. For more information on gallery exhibitions, call Nina Bachrach at (201) 408-1406 or email her at nbachrach@jccotp.org. The JCC is at 411 E. Clinton Ave., in Tenafly.
