Located in the Jacobs Lounge on the main floor of the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, the Gallery provides a platform for emerging and established artists to showcase their talent, share their stories and connect with the community through visual art.
Our exhibitions draw the viewer's attention to corners of everyday life, often challenging pre-existing opinions of culture, religious identity and social issues. Celebrate the powerful world of images and painting at The Gallery at the J.
Thank you to the artists who have applied to show. Our 2017-18 season is now booked.
About the Exhibit
The Best Laid Plans is a group exhibition by Toronto artists Romy Block, Bernice Manalo and Talie Shalmon, exploring the theme of control versus the absence of control in the art-making process, as well as the fear and relief associated with letting go. Each artist uses different methods and techniques to achieve a distinct aesthetic while leaving room for chance along the way.
"I have spina bifida. I am a disabled artist. For the first time in my artistic practice, I am examining how people like me, who live with this condition, view themselves and seek to claim their power and beauty."
