The JCCNV Fine Arts Program supports and encourages the development of Jewish artists and/or Jewish arts. The program is also committed to establishing and strengthening the relationship between the Northern Virginia community and Israel by integrating Israeli arts into its program.
The Program’s dedication to the arts has garnered an international reputation that’s both credible and well-respected amongst art enthusiasts, artists, art buyers, and sellers. Over the years, the Center’s Bodzin Art Gallery exhibitions have attracted talented artists who work in a wide-variety of media including painting, photography, jewelry, crafts and new media.
