    • bio written in 3rd person. No unnecessary Caps. We reserve the right to edit your bio.

2. Listing of events

Q: I am a member; how do I list my event?

A: Two actions to take:

1) Join the Facebook group Friends of the Jewish Art Salon and list your event there.

(This is separate from the Jewish Art Salon FB page.)
Current Salon members can post their exhibitions, films, recent press articles etc. in the FB group.

2) Email web-ready jpegs (no larger than 200kb each; no pdfs), and your text info to jaslistings@gmail.com 

Text cannot be an attachment; copy and paste text into the email body. Text needs to be written in the 3rd person. Send us more than just the venue and dates: write a short description of the artwork (if it is an exhibition), background info, and if possible include a URL link to the event.

Do NOT send us info with an email manager such as Constant Contact or Mailchimp. We cannot extract the images and text from those.

Do NOT send listing info to any other address, such as jas@jewishartsalon.org; jaslistings@gmail.com only!

We reserve the right to select which events will be posted on the website. 

Other suggestions: Follow us on Twitter. If you mention us in a tweet (@jewishartsalon) we will retweet. Our tweets are visible on each page of our website.

  • I am not a member; how do I list my event?
    If you have a Call for Art, or other opportunity that may interest our members, email us with info at jaslistings@gmail.com  A URL link and jpeg are appreciated.
    We cannot post any other events by non-members.

3. Miscellaneous

  • 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 jas@jewishartsalon.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”.
