Upcoming Exhibition(s)

Essence of Life
An all-media exhibition featuring artwork focusing on the Jewish holiday of Tu B'Shevat.

January 8 - February 9, 2017

Tu B’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar—celebrated this year on Saturday, February 11, 2017—marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. The holiday is marked by eating fruit, particularly grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. It is also a day in celebration of the idea that “man is a tree of the field,” and reflects on the lessons we can derive from our botanical analogue.

Michigan Regional Glass Exhibition

March 5 - April 13, 2017

The Janice Charach Gallery and Albert Young of Michigan Hot Glass are pleased to present our second Michigan Regional Glass exhibition. This exhibition is open to residents of the Toledo area, Windsor area and Michigan. From functional to non-functional, we celebrate everything that glass has to offer. Mixed media welcome, but the majority of the artwork has to be glass and original in concept by the artist.

This exhibition will be juried by Ferdinand Hampson.

Accepted artworks must be dropped off to the Janice Charach Gallery Wednesday, February 15 or Thursday, February 16, 2017. If you are shipping your artwork, make sure it arrives to the gallery by February 16. Please note, the artist is responsible for shipping costs to and from the gallery.
