“Community Longing and Belonging”

February 26 – April 2
JCC Inclusion Services 3rd annual exhibit in celebration of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month.

We are nearing a year since the COVID pandemic shut down our city and transformed all aspects of our social world; however, while we were isolated, we also saw our creativity flourish. This year, JCC Inclusion Services challenged artists of mixed ability, perspective, and faith to share a visual record of community longing and belonging to mark this historical moment and to celebrate the resilience and creativity of our diverse community.

“The Chai Quilt”

April 6 – May 14
The JCC Festival of Israeli Culture is celebrating life this year – Chai in Hebrew. The gallery is joining the celebration by asking members of our community to take a textile square and create your own celebration of life on it. The squares will be hung together on the walls of the gallery, creating a Chai Quilt that embraces the fact that, despite how challenging things can be sometimes, we are all always full of life.

If you’re interested in participating in the “Chai Quilt”, please email gallery@jccgv.bc.ca

 

“Tsipora” – Suzy Birstein

May 19 – June 27

Tsipora, Suzy Birstein’s Hebrew name, means “bird” in English. The “Tsipora” sculptures and paintings were begun in 2019, focusing on freedom, flights of fancy, and adventure. As 2020 arrived and brought with it the quiet isolation of COVID, the pieces became more focused on nesting and stability.

“Tsipora” will explore both sides of this duality – flying and grounding, exploring and nesting – a dichotomy all of us understand in these very particular times.
