Global Day Online Art Exhibit by Jewish Art Salon
The Global Day of Jewish Learning was conceived to mark the completion of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz’s monumental translation on the Talmud. The inaugural 2010 Global Day reached every corner of the Jewish world and brought Jews across the spectrum of beliefs and backgrounds together in a day of study and unity.
Shema! features the winning artwork of high school students in the US and Israel. The art includes a broad range of approaches, from quietly contemplative photography to exuberant paintings. Media includes photography, digital media, painting and drawing. The gallery was created in partnership between RAVSAK, Jewish Art Salon, Jewish Art Now, and the Global Day of Jewish Learning.

Global/Local, open to all Jewish artists, invited submissions that explored the visual texture and vocabulary of the artists’ particular Jewish communities. The work deals with themes of isolation, integration, social and ethnic exchange and modification within communities. The gallery was created in partnership between the Jewish Art Salon and Jewish Art Now, in honor of the Global Day of Jewish Learning. View Global/Local on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/31788989
