Bat Mitzvah Comes of Age

"Bat Mitzvah Comes of Age" is a traveling exhibit from the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, which shows how “bat mitzvah evolved from a radical innovation into a nearly universal American tradition.” It is a fascinating example of Judaism’s dynamism and ability to adapt to changing times and attitudes, while also exemplifying the continually evolving roles and responsibilities of women in cultural and religious life. This exhibit is co-sponsored by the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Hartford and the Mandell Jewish Community Center. For programming info: www.jhsgh.org

Elbert Weinberg's Women

May 1 - May 31, 2014

It is quite apparent that Elbert Weinberg loved women. His ability to depict how different they are appears unlimited. In clay, plaster, marble and bronze he joyously expresses women who are earthy, raucous, amorous, strong, graceful, mysterious and monumental. No doubt one will discover additional qualities in the rarely seen works on exhibit.

The Chase Family Gallery presents six to eight major exhibits each year, with works ranging from contemporary to classical to avant garde. Opening reception parties allow members to meet the artists, mingle with their friends, and get a sneak preview of the pieces on display.  

Our beautiful Gallery is a treat for the eyes and nourishment for the soul, presenting the works of local, national and worldwide artists and craftspeople.  We proudly present art in all forms:  painting, sculpture, photography, glass and ceramics.
