Appel Art Gallery Hosts Local Artists at September Reception

Wednesday, September 6
6:30pm, Free and open to the Community

The Joel and Linda Appel Gallery at the Katz JCC will be celebrating the work of local three artists: Denise Cooperman, Annie Stone and Michael Bruce.

An interior designer for over 30 years, Denise Cooperman’s art is a blend of her many talents from jewelry and furniture design.  Her vast array of artwork evokes deep emotion, like her new Judaic series which is inspired by her son and her bridal exhibit.

Annie Stone’s works creates miraculous gems of nature out of reclaimed materials. Using her textile design background, Annie has developed an original method of making nature collages that literally jump out of the frame.

Michael Bruce, an award winning local florist, will showcase his silk arrangements to compliment Cooperman’s bridal series and Stone’s nature inspired work.  Bruce has been a major exhibitor in the Philadelphia International Flower Show since 2004, winning Best in Show in 2006 and 2008 as well as a Best Achievement Award for Innovative Design Concept, The Philadelphia Trophy and The Alfred M. Campbell Memorial Trophy. In 2006, Mr. Bruce received a bronze medal at The First International Singapore Garden Festival.

The community is invited to the free opening reception and stop by the gallery in the months of September and October to enjoy this unique show during Katz JCC business hours. For more information, please email Suzanne Post at
