Current art exhibition at the Jewish Federation 


What can be more beautiful and varied? Lori McKenna began taking photos of sunsets to try to capture their beauty and to share that with others. She likes to find just the right moment – the light shining through the clouds, the sun reflecting off the water, or just the right combination of the light and elements in the frame. This photo on the website is one such photo, a sunset in Hawaii in which the rays of the sun reflect down from the clouds and onto the water. McKenna also enjoys finding the unique aspects of the places to which she travels, again finding landscapes or other subjects that she feels are interesting. She hopes you can stop by and enjoy this display of her photographs from Hawaii and Italy.


Lori McKenna has been a participant in the Jewish Federation of the San Gabriel and Pomona Valley’s Cultural Arts Program for several years, principally in the performance arts as a member of Kol HaEmek Community Chorale and the JFed Players. An amateur photographer, McKenna will often stop and take a photo of something she thinks is unique, unusually beautiful or a subject indicative of the area in which she is visiting. This is the first time she has shared her photographs publicly.


If you have any art you would like to display at the Jewish Federation please contact Cantor Judy Sofer at jsofer@jewishsgpv.org
