Art at the JCC Presents: EXPOSED! A mixed photographic, artistic journey by professional photographers.

Art at the JCC will host a juried local photography exhibition at the Jewish Federation’s Bronfman Family Jewish Community Center, 524 Chapala Street, opening Sunday, January 21 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. The exhibit will be on display through Thursday, February 22, 2018. The public is invited to the closing reception on Thursday, February 22 from 4:30-6:00 pm to enjoy exquisite photography, live music, and refreshments.


EXPOSED! showcases local and national photographers, many of whom are long-standing professionals in the community. Twenty-five percent of the exhibit’s proceeds benefit the Jewish Federation’s social service and community programs.


Curated by Lynn M. Holley, EXPOSED! will feature guest Juror, David McKenney. Pieces will be judged with Awards of Excellence and there will be a Cash reward for the 1st prize winner.


“This is a rare opportunity for photographers to show their wares in all genres of the discipline,” says Lynn Holley. “I plan to curate works in film and digital, and those photographers who work with photographs as a process of fine art application. Like jazz, there is Straight Ahead, Dixieland, Latin, Cool, Smooth and Ragtime, etc., yet, it’s all jazz, and this is all photography. There is a camera clicking somewhere.”


Intake will be open at the Bronfman Family JCC on Wednesday, January 10 from 11:00 am-2:00 pm, and on Thursday, January 11 from 12:00-2:00 pm. Entry is $15, $25 for two pieces, and $35 for three pieces. Photographers submissions are payable only upon intake. No photography with gratuitous violence or sexuality will be allowed, and all work must be ready to be hung and for sale; frames are optional. Art at the JCC will produce the tags. Names and contact information must be attached or marked on each work.

Art at the JCC

Artist and collector Eli Luria (z"l) launched Art at the JCC in 1999 to provide high-caliber, strongly-themed exhibits for the Santa Barbara community. The exhibit openings often feature gallery talks and panels with artists, curators and collectors that draw lively crowds.


Art at the JCC is a program of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara. Through its exhibition and outreach programs, Art at the JCC honors and shares the universality of Jewish values, history and culture through various forms of artistic expression. The purpose of Art at the JCC is to provide Central Coast and other artists from all disciplines the opportunity to bring their work to the Santa Barbara community. Because art is a universal language, our programs will cross all boundaries of religion, race, gender and age, and strive to maintain communication. Its mission is to promote identification and connectedness to the Jewish community and the community at large.
