  2. For those who looked at my comments calling a a confusing website, its not my website which is being fixed now and will show in a few weeks.
    Those were comments about my experiences with our American Jewish community which needs much educating from you -artists/designers of Jewish themes. Our jewish community needs to understand that in these days of cultural diversity, they should be supporting our creative efforts by establishing more judaic art galleries in synagogues, JCCs, day schools, and jewish org facilities. they need to support what we do. use our work as jewiwh educational tools in and out of the classroom, use our work for jewish org fundraisers, and support our efforts to present lectures and programs rather than another secular lecture about a non-Jewish related topic. In these diverist days, only a few do support our efforts while most do not both leadership and lay . When we hear from gallery directors that Jewish themes are not their priority as opposed to just jewish artists doing any secular art, or when you hear that your judaic art is too jewish for their jewish facility, we as Guild members need to roll up our sleeves and along with creating Jewish art, also be jewish educators to our community showing them and guiding them about priorities in these cultural diversiofy days—to learn about and support their own as other ethnic groups do as well.

    1. At the Jewish Art Salon we exhibit and promote contemporary Jewish art; we do not call it “Judaic art”. Often “Judaic” refers to Judaica objects, many (but not all) of which are in the crafts category, not on a fine art level.

      If the art is excellent, galleries and museums will follow. Perhaps it is a geographic thing; here in NYC there are plenty of opportunities. The uphill battle is funding.

      Thank you!


  3. That is welcome news. In such a case, I would like to participate whenever suitable. I believe that I have already participated in an exhibition previously.II think I am already a member. Keep me apprised of your events.
    Thank you

    1. Yes you are a current member Claire Jeanine. You are also on our email list. Our newsletter went out 10-14 days ago. Another one will go out today or tomorrow. In gmail these sometimes show up in the “Promotions” or “Social” tabs.


  4. My area of work is a visual one. I am primarily a book artist. ( you can see those works in the book section of my website). So it seems that we both have a devoted interest in Judaica, we come to it from different perspectives.

    Thanks for your response


    1. In our opinion we have the same perspective. At least a dozen of our members are book artists. Our very first art symposium in New York in 2009 featured a panel on book arts. Our exhibit proposal for the 2017 Jerusalem Biennale features several items of book art.


  5. Your website is bit confusing to me.
    I am a judiac artist/graphic designer and jewish educator and just retired as the visual communications/media Advisor to the U.S. Congress.
    Outside of exhibiting I have been lecturing on 2 issues that need much discussion.
    1. Advocating for Israeli accomplishments in the media to the American public- its problems
    2. Cultural Diversity and our own jewish cultural expressions- is there a fit?
    I have been presenting these to federations, JCCs, jewish orgs and synagogues, day schools and want to make them available but its not clear who is the right contact person .

    1. Thank you for your interest Avy. Our contact person is our Founding Director Yona Verwer. I will forward your info to her and she will get back to you.

    Whom can I contact to donate a work of art to the gallery?

    Thank you

    1. We are not a gallery; we exhibit at galleries and museums, but do not have an art collection


  7. If you are not acquainted with the work of Jewish abstract artist David B Wolk: then you are in for a treat. Enjoy!


    1. Good work! He might want to apply for membership:
      Is he in the NY area?
      We are planning an exhibit in Brooklyn; members’ submissions will receive priority.


  8. Hello, My name is Galit. I’m the daughter in law of Moshe Sendowski. He is an Israeli bronze sculptor. Not many hollocost survivors artists are left, fortunatly Moshe is one of them. He is 84 now and yet he dedicates his life to his work.
    I was wondering if you have any ideas/ways to help him spread and sell his beautiful works. He is selling sculptors in israel, and on the internet and still i have the feeling he hasn’t got the proper recognition.
    Hope we can work together somehow,
    Best regards,
