Waltuch Gallery Exhibits


Located on the second floor of the JCC, the Waltuch Gallery is a community space that exhibits thematically Jewish artwork, or art produced by a Jewish artist. Artists are mostly local, though some exhibits feature artists from around the country and the world. The Waltuch Gallery exhibit and receptions are free and open to the community. All of the work on exhibit is for sale and a portion of the proceeds go to support programming efforts in the JCC.

Visualizing the Essence of the Human Condition
The Masterworks of Jack Goresko: Paintings, Drawings and Illustrations
Jack Goresko’s story is part of a larger narrative about Jews from around the world who have struggled against anti-Semitism. Born in Montreal in 1916, Jack attended the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal before immigrating to the US. His diverse themes range from landscapes and still-life to emotionally-charged studies that reveal his keen sense human suffering that is profoundly influenced by the Holocaust. The exhibit will be presented as part of the JCC Kristallnacht Commemoration.
