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.

On the day we were married, my late husband and I climbed a rope ladder high up into the Costa Rican rain forest. We stood under a Chuppah, or “canopy”, of strangler fig trees and, in the company of howler monkeys and exotic birds, we were married. In loving memory of my husband and the home we created, I have created a series of ritual textile objects.
The story of Noah's Ark has always fascinated me. I feel it is significant as both a moral tale of humanity being punished for ‘wickedness' and as a mirror for my own struggles with rootlessness and being an outsider like the animals in the Ark. Working with storytelling and narrative is an important aspect of my work. In this series I have used digital photography and image manipulation to create my desired effect.
Over the past fifty years there has been a phenomenal rise in the number of Holocaust museums. This exhibition presents a sampling of these museums from around the globe to show how the narratives and stories shared by these institutions have significantly impacted how the Holocaust is understood. These museums position the events of the Holocaust and its legacy as relevant to our present and future, considering that generations of students are learning about the Holocaust through visits to these institutions.
