JGallery 2020 Current Exhibit

Let It Flow

Innovative ways to create art are always arising and opening new ways of looking at art and at the world. These new forms often utilize creative methods for artists to express themselves. Many artists are using more fluid techniques of applying paints or inks, forgoing the use of brushes. In flow or pour art, paints or inks are combined with various additives and applied by pouring, sprinkling, spraying or other dynamic means. Fluid materials enable the artist to give up some of the control which allows the artistic process to “happen”. Although at first glance the finished artwork may look like other contemporary art, the various fluid art methods of creation, and ultimately the final effects, are very different. Fluid art is an intersection of “creativity, chemistry and serendipity” according to Marilyn Rodriguez, whose pour art work is displayed along with that of Greta Olivas and Donna Starnes. 

Throughout the year, the JCC displays a series of visual arts exhibitions of photography, mixed media, paintings and fiber arts. JGallery features both new and established artists, local and traveling exhibits and more.

JGallery is devoted to expanding and enriching cultural life in Austin. By providing space to Jewish and non-Jewish artists, the JGallery offers the community the opportunity to explore the richness and diversity of art from a broad range of mediums. Through solo and group exhibitions JGallery serves as a vehicle to discover many avenues of artistic expression, finding common threads to Jewish experience, identity and culture. The gallery presents exhibitions and programming that aim to enhance knowledge, deepen understanding, expand art forms and take full advantage of each vibrant exhibition season.
