"Connection"
July 3rd through September 24th, 2020

EXHIBITION DATES: JULY 3 - SEPTEMBER 24, 2020 

FIRST FRIDAY RECEPTION: SEPTEMBER 4, 2020, 4PM - 5PM (VIRTUAL-ONLY)

Connections are all around us. We are connected to others, to our community, to our environment, to ourselves, and much more. This exhibition is a way for artists to connect with patrons and the Kansas City community by displaying (and selling!) artworks which display connections.

Gallery visits are by appointment-only for the time being. Schedule your visit here!

Honoary Chair, Babs Lowenstein, graciously donated one of her beautiful works of art for auction. Make your bid here! 

Artworks include: paintings, photographs, 3D pieces, fiber works and much more! We can't wait to see how you interpret this theme. 50% of sold artworks will go directly to artists, with the remaining 50% benefiting Jewish Family Services.

"Connection" is an art benefit for Jewish Family Services (JFS). JFS supports and strengthens lives throughout Greater Kansas City. They provide essential human services for people facing challenges in everyday life of times of crisis - regardless of faith, age, culture or lifestyle. JFS provides a breadth of services, with the goal of helping people in difficult times get back on their feet. Service areas include: Food, Shelter and Employment; Older Adult Services; Mental Health Services; Family Life Education; and Chaplaincy. **Interesting fact: Most JFS clients are not Jewish, but benefit immensely from their services and kindness.
