1. About Membership

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 post in our Facebook group. Occasionally, on our website or in our newsletter we may list some of the following:

If you are listed in our member directory: email us the following info in one email,  3-4 weeks in advance

    1. Subject line: Listing
    2. In email body (not an attachment): info / press release written in the 3rd person.
    3. 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.
    4. Web-ready images: 72 dpi, no larger than 1000 pixels on the largest side.
    5. Include an announcement graphic, if available, and several images, saved with your name in the title.

Do NOT:

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 or newsletter.  


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”, regardless of whether 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 jewishartsalon@gmail.com  A URL link and jpeg are appreciated.
We cannot post any other events by non-members.


3. Images for JAS Social Media (for Members only)

Q: How can I submit images for JAS social media?

  • Email address for images: jasimages18@gmail.com 
  • ONE email per image. For instance, if you have 3 images for the same holiday, send 3 separate emails. 
  • Subject line: “name of holiday, or other lifecycle event” ( one image per email).
  • Image files need to have your name saved (e.g. brian.schwartz_purim). 
  • In the email body: Title of work, name of artist, medium, and (not required) a sentence / short paragraph in the 3rd person about the artwork. Do NOT send this text in an attachment.
  • Jpegs need to be 72 dpi and not larger than 1.5 MB.

    We can only accommodate those who submit images according to the above instructions. 
    Our social media people will make the selection from the entries. We hold on to all submissions; those not selected this year might be featured the following year. 

4. Updating your Profile Page (for Fellows and Art Professionals)

How can I select the categories pertaining to my artwork or profession?
