J-ART: An Explosion of Creativity at the BJCC

Menorah continues its celebration of Jewish Arts  Month with J-ART, a community art show opening on Sunday, March 18 at 6 pm at the Boulder JCC.

Featuring a solo show by David Grojean and the work of eight Colorado artists, J-ART offers the community the opportunity to meet the artists at a wine and cheese reception. Following the free opening reception, the community is invited to stay for a panel discussion, “Curious Curators: Arbiters of Art” at 7 pm. Admission is $5 at the door.

Join us to find out how curators make the decisions they make and how they shape the art world. Our panelists will talk about what they do at their respective museums and galleries and answer questions about how they select art, display art and work with artists. Our panelists include Georgina Kolber, Curator of Exhibits, Programs and Collections at the Mizel Museum; Susan Saltzman, Director of Open Studios; Simon Zalkind, Director of the Singer Gallery.

Acclaimed Boulder artist David Grojean has fully committed himself to the art of painting for the last 35 years. After two years in the Marines, Grojean attended the American University in Washington, D.C., where he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Design. Deciding against a career in design, he attended graduate school in Boulder. In the spring of 1977, he received his Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Colorado and began his life as a professional painter.

David Grojean’s work is presently shown in galleries throughout the Western United States, Canada, and Europe. For the next few months, 24 paintings will be on display at the Boulder JCC.

In addition to Grojean’s paintings, J-Art includes a wide range of media – from ceramic to wood to mosaic to photography to fabric. Here’s a sampling:
