“Walls,” a multimedia exhibition of local, regional and national artists, is on view at the Jewish Cultural Center, 5461 North Terrace Road, through Oct. 27. There is no cost to view the exhibition.

Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Fridays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

“A year ago, I began thinking about the concept of walls, stirred by the talk of a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico and the conversations in Israel about who is able to go to the ... Western Wall. Non-physical walls between people seem to be reemerging,” says Ann Treadwell, curator of the exhibition and program director for the Jewish Federation.

The selected pieces of art represent various thoughts about physical, mental and spiritual walls. A statement about each wall, by the artist, is exhibited with each piece.

The exhibit includes works by several local artists including Judith Mogul, Miki Boni, Tom Farnum, Anna Carll, Howard Kaplan, Dana Shavin and Charlotte Smith. A unique piece, “The Wall of Criminal Justice,” by deMichael of the H’Art Gallery, is a series of four smaller pieces.

Regionally and nationally known artists include Harriet Goren, Cindy Lutz Kornet, Flora Rosefskym and fiber artists Laurie Wohl and Rachel Kanter.

The Jewish Cultural Center closes at various times during the Jewish High Holidays (specifically Sept. 21 and 22 and Oct. 5, 6, 12 and 13).
