Pop­u­lar ex­hi­bi­tion ex­tends into li­brary

Macclesfield Express - - TODDLER MURDER VERDICT -

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.
