About Us

Jewish Folk Crafts Guild Inc. is a multi-disciplinary art non-profit organization dedicated to presenting and preserving quality visual and media arts programs reflective of Brooklyn. We believe that the best way, is to let the art speak for itself. Since 1999, the Guild ran dozens of exhibitions presenting hundreds of works in various media. These included traditional wood carving, precious and semi-precious metals and stones, paintings, sculptures, stained glass, and embroidery. Our artists are also expressing themselves in new media, such as plastics, photography, and computer graphics.

20 Years In Lineup The Guild celebrated the its 20th jubilee.
