PJCC Art Gallery Exhibits
The Art Gallery at the Peninsula Jewish Community Center is committed to showcasing the works of talented Jewish artists as well as presenting exhibits that explore Jewish values, themes and ideas. It is our hope that along with adorning our walls, the exhibits will serve to stimulate personal thought and lively conversations among our members and guests.
During your next visit to the PJCC stop by our gallery located in our lobby and in the Koret Learning Center hall. Exhibits are free and open to the public!
The PJCC Art Gallery presents
2016 PJCC COMMUNITY ART SHOW
July 14 - September 25, 2016
A Brief Overview
Inspired by the PJCC’s guiding principle of “Welcoming All,” the Peninsula Jewish Community Center is excited to present our second Juried Community Art Show. Typically, the PJCC gallery features 20-25 works in a single show. This summer, with the use of additional space, we are proud (and to some degree astonished) to present 114 pieces, comprising three categories and representing 82 artists, all of whom reside and create within 60 miles of Foster City.
The PJCC Community Art Show, true to its name, is planned and run by the community. Thank you to our 2016 committee members: Connie Chen*, Emily DeMartini, Rachel Goldman**, Rachel Kardos, Eve Lerman, and Jane Williams.
We’d like the community to play one more important role. Where professional local artists/educators will jury the show for the Artist Reception and Award Ceremony, we’re passing the responsibility of “Community Choice Award” on to you! Please visit the Welcome Center to cast your vote by Sunday, July 31.
PJCC Members and guests are invited to view the exhibit in the following locations:
• Mixed Media: PJCC Lobby and along the Koret Learning Center hallway
• Photography: Conference Room A and the Board Room
• Handcrafted Jewelry: Lobby display cabinets
The PJCC Community Art Show was made possible by the many talented artists who have shared their work and the Eva Chernov Lokey Endowment for Programs.
