April in the Galleries: Featuring the work of Paul Slivka, Daniel Hall, and Yom Hashoah

The Janet Levine March Gallery will feature the work of Paul Slivka. Slivka started painting houses in high school while developing a career in music as a bass player. In his early years he traveled the world playing bass with a handful of bands and remains an active touring musician. Throughout his travels and his career, he became an avid art collector. One night in 2021 he picked up a brush, some acrylic paint and canvas and completed his first painting. Slivka has since created over 400 paintings and remains prolific to this day. His work is currently in the collection at The Red door Gallery in Key west and has been shown at Wonders on Woodland in East Nashville.

The JLMG2 Gallery will feature the work of Daniel Hall. Hall is an upcoming portraiture artist whose medium is graphite pencil. His realistic style perfectly captures the uniqueness of everyone with a meticulous attention to detail. This is his second exhibit at the J Galleries. 

The Sig Held Gallery will feature an exhibit of archival and modern art honoring Yom Hashoah. Known colloquially in Israel and abroad asYom HaShoah(Hebrew:יום השואה,Yiddish:יום השואה) and in English asHolocaust Remembrance Day, it is observed as Israel's day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews murdered in theHolocaustbyNazi Germanyand its collaborators, and for theJewish resistancein that period. In Israel, it is a national Memorial Day.
