Membership Benefits

  1. Preferential treatment for our exhibitions and virtual presentations. We have curated 30 well-received exhibitions so far, and 40 art events and workshops. As of April 2020 we have been hosting a popular bi-weekly series of Open Studios on Zoom. The presentations are by JAS members, but the sessions are open to the public. Although in exhibitions we sometimes invite guest artists, we primarily feature our member artists.

  2. Members are eligible for referrals to museums, curators and collectors, whenever we get a request for art that fits your work. Please note that we do not find museums or venues for artists to exhibit, unless a venue /curator asks us for specific types of work. 
In addition to our own exhibitions, we have assisted with both NY-based and out-of-town / foreign artists’ work being exhibited at:
The Y.U. Museum, New York, NY; Jerusalem Biennale; Derfner Museum, Riverdale, NY;  Miami Art Week, Mizel Museum, Denver CO; The New Museum, NYC; Philadelphia Museum of Jewish Art; Ein Harod Museum, Israel; 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, Sid Jacobson JCC, Peninsula JCC, Vancouver JCC & others.

What we do NOT do:

A) We do not supply artists with contact sheets for exhibition venues, personal introductions to galleries and curators, or any other tailor-made info.
B) We also cannot help artists bringing their previous exhibit to NYC. Those type of services are beyond our immediate scope, the type of services that are not covered under our modest membership fee.
Artists interested in purchasing this type of info may contact us at
