New Art Gallery Features Quilling Masterpieces

Opening night at The Juneberry Tree Art Gallery fine art exhibition space in Crown Heights, showcased ‘Paper Alive’, an exhibition by quilling artist Yamit Presman.

Opening night at The Juneberry Tree Art Gallery, Crown Heights’ new fine art exhibition space for emerging Jewish artists, was a resounding success! Patrons of the arts came from across Brooklyn and even as far away as Riverdale to view quilling artist Yamit Presman’s exhibition, ‘Paper Alive’. 

Quilling is a type of paper art where thin strips of paper are rolled into different shapes and glued on their side creating a 3D design.  

A multi-talented woman, Yamit spoke to those in attendance about her artwork and how she discovered it. Calling it a language of her Soul, Yamit’s work covers a range of themes in Jewish life.  Our favorites are Miriam in which the paper truly comes alive. One gets the sense of dancing alongside Miriam as she plays her tambourine by the side of the Yam Suf! Visitors were also intrigued by Hot Peppers and its velvety-looking texture.

Yamit’s work will be on display at the gallery through February 9th.  

The gallery is housed in a century-old warm and artsy home at 1714 President Street in Crown Heights and shares space with Ikar at the Alcove, a new Jewish women’s learning collaborative modeled after the Chautauqua Institute’s learning vacation concept.

Ikar at the Alcove offers an eclectic mix of classes, lectures and creative workshops and cater to small groups, fostering a friendly atmosphere for gathering together and learning something new from master instructors affiliated with the multi-talented Chabad/Lubavitch community.   

Our affordable programs, $35 or $10 per class include drinks and refreshments.  Register for more than one program and receive a 10% discount.  

The Juneberry Tree Art gallery is open most Sundays from 1 to 5 pm, Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9 pm or by appointment.

There is no charge to visit the gallery.
