We want to hear from you: Take the FALL Fitness Survey

Current Exhibit

Open video on YouTube

As we all continue to react and evolve in response to all that is happening, the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery invites you experience our current exhibition either virtually or live in person, or both.

Beyond The Surface is a group show featuring Olga Campbell, Janice Beaudoin, Dorothy Doherty, Jane McDougall, and Ellen Pelto. The show features the work this group of talented artists made in workshops by artist Michael Shemshuk. The pieces all use wood panels and a wide array of everyday materials, built up and then revealed using a variety of practices.

Beyond The Surface explores exploration itself, and a video tour can be seen here. The show can also be seen in the gallery by appointment. Appointments can include up to 5 people, and can be made by emailing gallery@jccgv.bc.ca.

CALL FOR ENTRY

ARTIST AND NON ARTISTS ALIKE

In what has been a time of strange isolation, our lives have been truly upended. As a result, we are compelled to view the world in new and different ways.

As a means of sharing this experience with one another, The Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery at the JCC of Greater Vancouver is creating What We See: Moments and Stories from the COVID-19 Pandemic, a series of stories told through narratives and photographs that will showcase the way in which members of our community are looking at the world right now.

The series will include photographs by people who have been, or continue to be, isolated at home, and stories about those images and the experiences individuals have had during this time. To accompany the images and narratives, an experienced photographer will be sent to take photographs of the participants from outside their homes - through windows, or from the street. The photographs taken of the photographer-subjects will accompany the image they’ve taken themselves and the story that accompanies it.

Download the full Call for entry and submission information here.

Previous Exhibit

In this new and complicated landscape, the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery is going virtual, bringing you an exhibition straight from the gallery walls: Photo Club Vancouver’s exhibit Serenity.

Featuring the work of 19 photographers, Serenity is truly a timely exhibit. Each image presents a take on the concept of joy and calm. They find peace in the simple; they visualize the experience of wondering where peace can be found; they struggle to find peace in places that have always been peaceful, but now, at this moment, are something else.

Serenity is a journey - an escape, a memory, and hope for the future. Enjoy it here.

Vocabulary and grammar are demonstrated through short, original biblical passages, facilitating independent reading in the actual text. Courses require a few hours of homework per week to allow good absorption of the material.
