Art at the J in the

Murray Berman Art Gallery

Interesting. Intriguing. Stimulating. Exhibits year round at the Art at the J Gallery in the rotunda. Art @ the J continues to offer a wonderful space to local artists to show their work. The exhibits have ranged from nationally recognized artists to photo exhibits by JCC members.

The committee of Art @ the J is co-chaired by Elaine Bloomfield, Dr. Dennis Bloomfield and Tamra Walker. The committee members include Rita Berg,  Molly Honigsfeld, Ronit Lapid, Murray Berman and Stanley Weinstein.

Art @ the J dedicated to finding and giving local artists a place to reach the public while providing JCC members, and the public at large, an opportunity to experience the accessible, stimulating creativity that quietly lives among them.
