In January, the Weinstein JCC hosted a dynamic collaborative art critique event in the Sara D. November Gallery. A collaboration between Artspace members and the JCC, the event brought together professional and amateur artists in the community. Attendees exchanged ideas and shared their work in this engaging artistic dialogue.

The Sara D. November Gallery, dedicated to enriching Richmond’s cultural landscape, will host another collaborative critique event in the spring. Stay tuned for details!

Mark your calendars for March 7, at 7 p.m., as the JCC presents the ‘Left Brain/Right Brain: Intersection’ exhibit in the Sara D. November Gallery.
