JCC Art Galleries

Located on the second floor of the JCC Benderson Family Building, the Bunis Family Art Gallery is a community space providing creative opportunity for local artists to showcase and sell their works. Brightly colored paintings, and intriguing photographs are just examples of the beautiful pieces of art on display throughout the year in the Gallery. Exhibits and receptions in the Bunis Family Art Gallery are free and open to the community. Most work on exhibit is for sale and a portion of the proceeds go to support Cultural Arts programming efforts at the JCC.

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 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.
