Appel Art Gallery
Located in the heart of the Katz JCC, the Appel Art Gallery showcases the artwork of local and nationally recognized artists whose works center around Jewish spiritual, cultural, and historical themes. Exhibits rotate every other month and include mediums such as photography, jewelry, sculpture, painting, and textiles.
January/February 2017 Exhibit
This exhibit features original artwork by members of the Katz JCC ACHaD and Samost JFCS special needs programs for teens and adults, created in classes over the course of several months.
In the ACHaD All About Art course, participants explored art and its different forms and styles as it appears around the globe; various mediums and colors are found in every piece of art, creating a vibrant, creative and unique pieces of art. This year’s projects that will be on display from the ACHaD participants were inspired by sawdust carpets and Central American molas.
In the JFCS TOPS day program, a variety of modalities were incorporated to explore artistic interests. Much of the art is done in watercolors and oil pastels inspired by nature, decorated tiles and glass using special inks, and clay work in 3D forms, bowls, plaques, wall mirrors, and a large, finely textured “Naturescape.” In addition, you will see prints created with the “Gelli Art” print process, creating new and unique pictures.
