Assour Brings Israeli Art to Patio Gallery

IMG_3120Spring is here, why not add a little color to your life.

The JCC Patio Gallery will present Expressions, an Israeli Art Exhibit and Sale, April 30-May 6 with an opening reception Wed., April 30, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

The sale features Israeli artists from around the world who work in various mediums, from paintings and photography to sculpture and outdoor sculpture.

“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.

Colonel Itzhak “Col. Izzy,” Assour will be at the JCC the entire week and can talk about the art on sale and the artists who made it.

Assour has been to Louisville before, with several sales at the JCC and synagogues which were very successful. Throughout the years, he has been very influential in the rise of Israeli art recognition across the United States.

There are several Israeli programs happening at the JCC during the month of April, including a Book Club, Israeli photography and Israeli soldiers who will be attending Yom HaShoah. All of these programs are part of the Partnership 2Gether program.
