In celebration of Tu B’Shevat the Weinstein JCC presents, “Strong Roots for Blossoming Fruits” in the Sara D. November Gallery beginning Jan. 12 and running through Feb. 24.
The Jewish festival of Tu B’Shevat, also referred to as the “New Year of the Trees,” lends itself to community.
Our roots are affected and become strong when nourished by our surroundings. In celebration of our strong roots and our surrounding communities, students of The Faison Center created artwork based on their interpretations of concepts associated with Tu B’Shevat.
Preparations for this inclusive exhibit began months ago as Faison students and members of the Weinstein JCC created a large collaborative art piece.
Local artists Rhona Arenstein, Lisa Levine and Marjorie Myles helped facilitate the large collaborative piece at the JCC.
Faison students then created their own individual art pieces at the Faison Center. The exhibit will showcase the individual works as well as the collaborative piece.
