The teachers from the design and art/craft departments at the Jewish Community Center on the Upper West Side are holding a sale of their works next week, just in time for Mother’s Day. It will take place in the lobby of the JCC building on May 8 and 9, Tuesday from 11am to 8pm and Wednesday from 11am to 6pm. We’ve written up the instructors’ December holiday sale before, and know from first-hand experience that they showcase beautiful goods for reasonable prices (ranging from $15 to $500). You’ll find handmade jewelry (gold, silver, glass, and beaded bijoux), ceramics, scarves, pillows, and much more. Shown here is a handmade, one-of-a-kind, show-stopping necklace from artist Melissa Terman. If you’re on the Upper West Side those days, stop in, as you will not be disappointed…and hopefully, your mom will not be, either! The JCC is located at 334 Amsterdam Ave. at 76 St. (Cash, checks, and credit cards accepted.)
