L’Annexe’s (Agence Ometz’s Centre for Young Adults) vernissage, “From Strength to Strength,” demonstrated that amazing things can happen when a community works together. They were happy to host this event at the Sylvan Adams YM-YWHA on February 15 after sharing the inaugural one online last year.

Over 37 multigenerational artists from partnering organizations Ometz, Cummings Centre, Alink, Moishe House and the Sylvan Adams YM-YWHA exhibited their creative works with pride. While mingling with guests, they were enlightening about their methods and what inspires them to create. An array of genres was on display, including painting, comic art, poetry and embroidery.

To top off the exhibition in celebration of Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance and Inclusion Month, Zera Café was on hand to offer cakes and their delicious halva-tahina brownies.
