FOR ARTISTS:

We are launching several new initiatives this year and next:

  • We are currently preparing several tightly-curated group exhibits and 3 solo exhibits in New York and elsewhere. More info and calls for art will go out later. 
  • We have ongoing relations with Jewish media; each month they feature several of our artists, both online and in print.
  • We launched a Presenters Bureau, which will bring the members of the Jewish Art Salon into dialogue with the larger community. The Speakers Bureau is a forum for the public to find lecturers for museums, synagogues, universities, and public institutions throughout the world.
  • We will be building a new & improved website, which will feature Fellow artists, 3 of their images, their contact info, links to their website, and keywords to describe their work and media.
  • We are strengthening our connections with other art communities in the USA and Israel, and are working on collaborative projects.

Benefits for Artists NOT in the NY area:
  
1. If you are accepted as a Fellow, we will refer you to museums, curators and collectors, whenever we get a request for art that fits your work. For instance, we were able to place several out-of-town (& out-of-country) artists in the book art exhibit at NY's MOBIA, Museum of Biblical Art. Associates will be referred on a case by case basis.
   
In addition to aforementioned exhibits, we have also assisted with out-of-town artists' work being exhibited at the Mizel Museum, Denver CO; The New Museum, NYC; Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art; Reginald Lewis Museum, Baltimore MD; Stanback Museum, Synagogue for the Arts, NYC; the Educational Alliance, NYC; the Museum of Imajewnation, the Westchester JCC, Pratt Center's Hadas Gallery, Brooklyn NY; BEKI, New Haven CT; the Center for Jewish Arts & Literacy, Blank Rome, Philadelphia; Vivant Art, Philadelphia; Industry City Gallery, Brooklyn, Vancouver JCC & others.

Members are also eligible to submit work for our own upcoming exhibits.
     
2. We help many artists get published in the press, both online and hard copy. Publications have included Bar-Ilan Journal of Jewish Art, Art Criticism, Sh'ma Journal, NY Jewish Week, Jewish Press, Haaretz, Zeek, Lilith Magazine, CCAR Journal: The Reform Jewish Quarterly (Arts Issue), Queens Journal of Jewish Studies, Jewish Currents, Jewish Exponent & more.
