1. About Membership
- What is the Jewish Art Salon?
We are a 501.c.3 non-profit organization serving visual artists and art professionals interested and working in contemporary Jewish visual art. We organize art exhibitions and art events, and we provide important resources. Our office is in New York, our members are worldwide. See more info here.
2. Listings (for members): what, how to, and when
Q: I have a major event coming up. Will this be posted on the Jewish Art Salon website?
We reserve the website for special occasions only. We therefore strongly encourage you to also post in our FB group. Occasionally we may list some of the following:
Member’s solo show in prestigious museums or galleries
Exhibitions that feature a substantial number of JAS members
Noteworthy awards, publications, press mentions, book signings, presentations, etc.
Listings are created at the discretion of the webmaster. Our capacity is limited. We apologize that we cannot list all submissions.
HOW TO LIST:
If you are listed in our member directory: email us the following info in one email, 3-4 weeks in advance.
- Subject line: Listing
- In email body (not an attachment): info / press release written in the 3rd person.
- Info needs to be more than just the venue, address and dates: write a short description of the event or the artwork (if it is an exhibition), background info, and if possible include a URL link to the event.
- Web-ready images: 72 dpi, no larger than 1000 pixels on the largest side.
- Include an announcement graphic, if available, and several images, saved with your name in the title.
a) send us info with an email manager such as Constant Contact or Mailchimp. We cannot extract the images and text from those.
b) send images in separate emails. All info needs to be in one email.
c) send a link to download images. All images need to be attached.
If the submitted materials do not follow the guidelines they will not be considered for publication, and you will not be notified about the reason for not being published. Sorry, but we have time constraints.
Also, we regret not being able to answer artists’ questions. Art professionals however are invited to inquire, since their submissions may differ.
Regardless of placement on our website, you should always post your event in our Facebook Group
We reserve the right to select which events will be posted on the website.
Q: I am a member; how do I list my event if it does not qualify placement on the website?
Only current Salon members in good standing can post in the FB group. See also the next question.
Q: Which listings on Facebook will be rejected?
A) Listings that feature artwork without the context of a current or upcoming exhibition or other noteworthy event. In other words, do not post images saying “My most recent painting” or “For sale”, or “This artwork was just sold”.
B) Fundraising requests for organizations or people other than yourself.
I am not a member; can I list my event?
If you have a Call for Art, or another opportunity that may interest our members, email us with info at email@example.com A URL link and jpeg are appreciated.
We cannot post any other events by non-members.
3. Updating your Profile Page (for Fellows and Art Professionals only)
- How can I select the categories pertaining to my artwork or profession?
View the Art Categories page and email us the categories you want to be listed under.
How can I update my photos and bio?
Soon all will be emailed on how to do this yourself.
In the meantime email firstname.lastname@example.org as follows:
In the subject line: Update Profile
In the body of the email (not an attachment) your bio written in the 3rd person.
If you send images, save them as 72 dpi, with your name in the file.
- I have a Gmail account and J.A.S. emails get marked as spam, or end up in the Promotions tab (or I don’t receive them).
To prevent this from happening add our email address email@example.com to your contact list. You can also add a filter to your account to never send JAS emails to spam. MORE INFO
If our emails still end up in your Gmail Promotions tab, click on the email and drag it into the Inbox tab. When asked if you want to continue receiving the emails in your inbox click “yes”.
