All of the 2014-15 Art Exhibitions are made possible, in part, by a gift from Cookie Addison & Family.


All Cultural Arts programs at the APJCC are made possible, in part, by generous contributions from Sylvia & Leonard Metz, and  Doris & Rick Davis.



Rinat Goren

February 27th - April 30th
Artist Talk and Reception: March 11th | 2:00pm-4:00pm

Rinat Goren creates encaustic (beeswax) collages of people and their values. Born and raised in Israel, Rinat immigrated to the United States as a young adult. The California colors find their way into Goren's art. Deep oranges, yellows, and reds are the most common hues found in her work. Her inspiration is people around her who achieved a full life through hard work and mindfulness.
