Mandel JCC hosts exhibit for prominent national Jewish artist, David Kapp
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (February 5, 2019) --- The Mandel JCC in Palm Beach Gardens is hosting an art exhibit for prominent Jewish artist David Kapp in its Lyons Art Gallery through February 28, 2019. This special, limited-engagement exhibit is free and open to the public, providing the Palm Beaches’ community access to high quality cultural arts. A member of the elite National Academy of Design – an honor bestowed to only 450 artists around the world and elected by peers – Kapp’s work will be featured this year as part of the organization’s national touring exhibition, For America; Paintings from the National Academy of Design, created in collaboration with the American Federation of Arts. Kapp is best known for his paintings of the contemporary urban landscape. The format of the work tends to be vertical or square and the horizon line itself has often been pushed beyond the edge of the canvas. Kapp’s paintings have been described as having “the feeling of silence that follows traffic noise, or the emotional distance of standing behind plate glass.”
His work can be found in museums and public collections throughout the United States and Europe, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh, NC; and Foundation Paribas, Paris, France.
