Jewish Art Salon – Frequently Asked Questions
2. How to list events
- 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 art. We organize art exhibitions and art events, and we provide important resources. Our office is in New York, our members are worldwide.
- I am not located in the New York area or the USA. Should I join?
We have assisted many out-of-town artists with exhibitions and press, and provided non-local art professionals with networking opportunities. Our membership is currently closed, but email us with “membership” in the subject line, and a URL link to your artwork or publications, and we will get back to you when we re-open membership applications.
Q: I have a major event coming up. Will this be posted on the Jewish Art Salon website?
Occasionally we may post 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 whoever is doing the web updates at that moment. 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, preferably minimum 4 weeks before the event.
- 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. 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?
EVERY member should post their event in our Facebook group “Friends of the Jewish Art Salon”, whether or not it may be listed on our website as well.
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.
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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”.
