Thank you to all who participated in programs over the past three weeks with Israeli artist in residence, Asaf Elkalai.
The residency sponsored by the JCC and the Jewish Federation of Buffalo was a huge success. The program offered the opportunity for community members to learn from Asaf through lectures and workshops, and offered many opportunities for collaborations between different organizations. Programs included lecture presentations, workshops in Self Portrait, drawing and photography, and a traveling “photography caravan” which consisted of 12 photographers exploring Jewish sites in Buffalo and taking photographs. Photos from this caravan will be curated, printed and framed and exhibited in the JCC Holland Building Art Gallery in August, 2018.
Here are just a few images from his incredible residency! If you came to an event with Asaf we would love to hear your thoughts, please email feedback to Katie Wzontek, Cultural Arts Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
