Sunday, April 28, Noon-3pm - Special Reception and Meet the Artists
Sunday, May 5, Noon-6pm - Gallery Open with extended hours to view Art Exhibit
Cinematic artistic expression is a key element of the Wilmington Jewish Film Festival. Art in Bloom Gallery expands that element with an affiliated art exhibit, “Jewish Journeys“. Original art will be on view and for sale at Art in Bloom Gallery from April 25th – May 8th. The exhibit aims to raise money and awareness for the 6th Annual Wilmington Jewish Film Festival.
This community project is sponsored by the film festival for the second year with guest curator, Amy Grant, owner of Art in Bloom Gallery, 210 Princess St. in historic downtown Wilmington in collaboration with Miriam Oehrlein, owner of New Elements Gallery. The original artwork that will be exhibited was chosen to encourage and expand the understanding of Jewish culture and art. Each artist expresses his or her own interpretation of “Jewish Journeys: An Art Exhibit,” so the art exhibit will reflect different points of view. The exhibit will feature special guest artists, including Elisa Agami (sculpture), Judith Yael Cohen (mixed media), Robyn Gahr (mixed media), and Owen Wexler, from New Elements Gallery.
Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 6pm with special hours on Sunday from noon until 5pm and by appointment.
The Wilmington Jewish Film Festival has as its primary mission the presentation of films with Jewish content to advance and share common interests within the Jewish community and at the same time share Jewish heritage with the general public.
