JCC on the Palisades Sponsors Photography Exhibit

The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades Waltuch Art Gallery, located at 411 E. Clinton Avenue in Tenafly, presents “Out/About/Underground,” a photography exhibition by artist Victoria Kolomensky. The show will be on display June 2-30, with a meet-the-artist reception on Tuesday, June 6, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Kolomensky grew up in Bergen County and attended the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades for preschool and summer camp, and often spent time at the pool or in the gym as a child. She has a master’s degree in art history, and traveled extensively in Florence as part of her studies. She now lives on the Upper West Side of New York City and works in admissions in the New York City independent school world.

“I’ve always had a deep appreciation for art and composition and am deeply attuned to light, the way it shines through someone’s jacket on the sidewalk ahead of me or the way light in the late afternoon creates deep silhouettes,” says Kolomensky. “I’m also deeply attuned to people and like to think that my photographs tell their stories. The people in them are captured in one moment in time that creates points of departure for viewers who are free to translate the emotion that is evoked in them into their own personal narrative. I have experimented with shooting photographs of buildings and landscapes, but always come back to people, as people are forever changing, but are always the same. For me, people are a conduit for the viewer’s empathy, beginning with my own.”

Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m.; Friday and Sunday, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.; closed Saturday and Jewish holidays. Admission is free and open to the community.
