Art on the West Side Returns April 15-16 at the JCC
Local and regional artists will exhibit and sell their work at Art on the West Side, a juried art show at the Gordon Jewish Community Center co-chaired by Betsy Hoffman and Missi Freidenberg.
More than 40 artists – painters, sculptors, jewelry makers, ceramicists, watercolorists, and printmakers – will be on hand to chat with guests about their process and artwork.
This year, we had an extraordinary number of new artists apply and are pleased to welcome them to Art on the West Side. There will be stunningly intricate linoleum prints by Sarah Bogdal, a 2018 graduate of Watkins College of Art who enjoys the challenge of carving with a knife to create lines, marks and squiggles which form the relief print. Marci Hirsch of Memphis will be joining the show with her beautiful handmade jewelry which she creates using metalsmithing techniques. Wee Ng will be displaying his incredible oil paintings all which convey different narratives.
The two-day event begins on Saturday, April 15 from 6-9PM with a cocktail reception. The suggested price is $10. Entry on Sunday, April 16 is free, and the show is open to the public from 10am - 4pm. A percentage of all sales from Art on the West Side benefit art programming at the Gordon JCC.
