Popular exhibition extends into library
AN exhibition celebrating Jewish life, arts and enterprise in the town has been extended.
The show was curated in conjunction with Incubation Arts and has been on display at Charles Roe House throughout May. Now it’s being moved to Macclesfield Library as part of the Barnaby Festival.
Basil Jeuda, who has curated the exhibition, said: “The recent exhibition, put together by Incubation Arts to celebrate Jewish Life in the Macclesfield area during World War Two, proved extremely popular, with more than 1,500 people from all over the country visiting it. Following this success, most of the exhibition, other than the paintings and sketches, will be transferred to go on display again over the Barnaby period.”
The new exhibition, consisting of display panels and much ephemera and memorabilia, will run from Tuesday, June 14, to Friday, July 1, during the usual Library opening hours.
From 2pm until 4pm, on Tuesday, June 21, Basil will lead a free discussion on the firms and personalities that were featured in the Exhibition, such as Halle, Friedland,Franklin, Friend, and Belmont.
