Dohse-Peck works in mixed media and has demonstrated her talents in numerous solo shows, has exhibited in group shows both nationally and internationally, has won prizes and is featured in private collections.

The upcoming exhibit at the JCC, Kindred Spirit and other connections continues to display Doshe-Peck’s use of art as a medium to express her thoughts and educate the community on topics that are important to her. Her on-going concerns about environmental crises led naturally to the centerpiece of this show. She has chosen to take advantage of the dynamic, curved space in the Levy and Daniel Families Art Gallery to address fears about the pollution of water. Using the space to mount a large scale mixed media collage measuring 56 inches by 182 inches, she will incorporate found and purchased objects, paint, quotations and drawings into this focal piece, a whale. The whale emerged from several years of work on art projects (a “man versus nature” series) focusing on plastics, which gradually developed into an exploration of water-related issues.

Calling all Artists

The gallery provides a creative space for artists to showcase and sell their works. Opportunities are available for two month exhibitions and each new exhibition includes an opportunity for an artist sponsored reception to kick off the exhibit, allowing JCC members and interested community arts patrons the opportunity to meet the artist and learn more about their artistic process and creative goals. Additionally, for some exhibiting artists, workshops, presentations to schools and synagogues, and interactive classes are included. We are currently seeking works on paper, photographs, paintings and textiles. No 3-D accepted at this time.

To submit, please send the following via email to kwzontek@jccbuffalo.org: 4-10 images, along with resume, biography of the artist and details for the pieces that the artist is submitting (Title, Year, Dimensions, Medium, Price). Selected artists will be responsible for delivery, installation and de-installation of the artists’ work. Submissions are reviewed year-round for future exhibitions.
