AN appeal for professional Leeds Jewish artwork has been made ahead of an exhibition about the contribution Jewish artists have made to the city over the last century.

The exhibition, called A Century of Leeds Jewish Fine Art, is on March 2 and 3 at the Etz Chaim Synagogue, in Harrogate Road, Moortown, and is set to feature works by Jacob Kramer, Judith Levin, Willy Tirr, Philip Naviasky, Joash Woodrow and Arthur A. Friedenson.

Presented by the Jewish resource centre Makor, the exhibition needs works which can be donated for sale, sold on commission or merely loaned for viewing.

Makor organiser Helen Frais, above, with a donated work by late Leeds artist Philip Naviasky, said: “We would love to hear about any works from established artists but we are also interested in knowing of other Leeds-related professional Jewish artists from the same period.”
