Gallery Opening and Cocktails
Saturday, May 20, 2017 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM

Everyone, please join us on this one, amazing, very special night where we all celebrate together CRJ’s first ever Arts Festival! This gallery opening will feature the diverse artworks of our talent-rich congregants. All the fine art and crafts will be on display for the first time at this Saturday gala. Some exhibits will be strictly for viewing, and others will be for sale. Be the first to get a sneak peek and snag dibs on buying them. Not to mention, you’ll be supporting the arts, your fellow congregants, and CRJ! A portion of all art sales are being donated to our congregation. There will be wine, a nosh, and an evening with special performances, featuring show tunes written by some of Broadway’s greatest Jewish songwriters.

It’s only $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Best of all, your ticket price can be applied to any art purchase all weekend long!

05/21/17 Sun. 2:00 to 4:00 PM Creative Writing with Michael Tabb
Comic book icon Stan Lee says, “With Michael’s tips, writer’s block is a thing of the past!” Michael explains how to generate a story fit for the movies from a blank slate, inspired by his upcoming book PreWrites: Going from Zero to Story. These methods can be used to brainstorm a story idea for ANY creative writing medium.Howard Rodman, the president of Hollywood’s Writers Guild of America, states, “Michael Tabb has thought long, hard, and usefully about how to write screenplays with vision and intent. He understands premise, character, conflict, drama; far more importantly, he can impart wisdom about all of them without condescending or ‘dumbing down.’ I know of no better guide to the work of writing that happens before we write.” For more information about Michael and the book, see Michael’s website at

05/21/17 Sun. 2:00 to 4:00 PM Zenspirations ® Patterning with Joanne Fink 
Rhythmic patterns can enhance any piece – whether an illustration, border or initial. Join master calligrapher Joanne Fink, author of Zenspirations Patterns & Lettering, to create your very own Zenspirations design. Joanne will start by teaching a few simple patterns, and will show participants how to do a simple illustration, and then double-stroke it to create space along the perimeter. Using Sakura’s Micron 01 pen, participants will create their own unique Zenspirations design by decorating these perimeter spaces with patterns. Everyone will complete their design by adding touches of metallic and glitter color with Sakura’s Stardust® and metallic Gelly Roll® pens.
