JEWISH SERVICE for the Developmentally Disabled of MetroWest (JSDD) hosted a fund-raising gala and art exhibit opening on Nov. 4.
Livingston Deputy Mayor Alfred Anthony was honored for his commitment to people with special needs and their families in Livingston. The event also honored Barry R. Mandelbaum of Mandelbaum Salsburg P.C. with the Outstanding Advocate and Humanitarian award.
The “Doorways to Infinite Possibility” is a collaborative, multimedia exhibition reflecting literal and figurative expressions of movement from one place to another. JSDD WAE Center artists worked alongside lead artists, including Teela Banker, Madison Berry, Ellen Hanauer, Claude Larson, Yvette Lucas, Deniz Olcay, Keely McCool, Mansa Mussa, Heidi Sussman, and Amy Tingle, to create works that delve into the concepts of home, movement, possibility, and infinity.
“The WAE Center is a wonderful manifestation of what we do here at JSDD,” said JSDD executive director Linda Press. “The vibrant talents of our individual members are once again on display for the community to appreciate, and we couldn’t be more appreciative of the support we receive to enable these programs.”
The exhibit runs through Dec. 30 at the Gaelen Gallery East in the JCC MetroWest, West Orange. For information, contact Lisa Suss, Gaelen Gallery manager, at 973-530-3413 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
