The Jewish Community Center is offering you a way to support Israel while adding color and style to your home.
From Wednesday, April 30-Tuesday 6, Col. Itzhak “Izzy” Assour is bringing the Israeli Art Exhibit and Sale from Expressions Art Gallery to the JCC Patio Gallery. Come to the opening reception, April 30, 6:30 p.m. to see the full collection, meet Assour and enjoy refreshments.
The participating artists studied in many countries, including France, Russia, Morocco, Ethiopia, Romania, the U.S. and Israel, so their creative expressions reflect different schools and techniques. They work in a variety of media as well, and this show includes paintings, photography and sculpture. All the artists are well known in Israel.
“People will be very impressed with the collection,” said Slava Nelson, Adult and Cultural Arts director.
Expressions Art Gallery was founded by Major Assour, Izzy Assour and Yoni Geffen in May 2008 and is on Frishman Street, in the center of the new art gallery district in Tel Aviv. The gallery aims to promote and support Israeli artists by presenting the best contemporary Israeli art in Israel and abroad.
Izzy Assour will be at the JCC the entire week and can talk about the art on sale and the artists who created it.
Assour has been to Louisville before, with several successful sales at the JCC and local synagogues. Over the years, he has been very influential in the rise of Israeli art recognition across the U.S.
