Admin/Biographical History The Janice Charach Gallery was established by Natalie and Manny Charach on June 13, 1990 in memory of their daughter Janice Charach, a young and accomplished artist. In the fall of 1990, ground broke on a 7,200 square-foot art wing at the Maple-Drake Jewish Community Center. The Charach Gallery officially opened with its premier exhibition "The Art of Collection: The Jewish Collector's Experience" in July 1991. In 2015, the gallery celebrated its 25th anniversary.

The Janice Charach Gallery provides a forum for the creation, exhibition and interpretation of visually oriented media. They promote works of fine art created by Jewish and non-Jewish artists providing unique opportunities for emerging and acknowledged artists.
