  • March 13, 2023

Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) is pleased to announce that the Visual Arts Exhibition Collected Thoughts is now on view at 161-04 Jamaica Avenue. The exhibition is a part of JCAL’s Artists Residency and Training Seminar Series, known as ARTWorks. ARTWorks is a 10-month Fellowship focused on career sustainability for emerging, underrepresented visual artists in New York City. Six emerging artists developed and created individual and collaborative artwork displaying their talents and vision.

JCAL Seminar Fellows are participating in a curated, 8-week group exhibition in JCAL’s Community Gallery while each Resident Fellow receives a curated 4-week solo exhibition in JCAL’s Miller Gallery.
