With the end of Yom Kippur, a Great Tekia is blown from the Shofar, and then we wish each other a Good Year.
Join the Jewish Art Salon as we continue a dialogue to explore the artistic process behind the work of three contemporary artists. In this session artists @ef4art , @gabriellaboros and Sandra Indig explore the process of re-creation: the deposits and richness of creativity that emerge from desolation and despair.
Last Sunday's JAS Zoom presentation featured @joelsilversteinart who showed us his exciting and totally original oeuvre based on biblical themes; contemporary look at the visual tradition of the epic and the evocation of the sacred. The artist’s family, friends and other autobiographical material are the inspiration for a complex Magic Realism. This creates an overlapping sense of myth derived from such diverse sources as dreams, cinema, Old Master painting, photography and comic books.
Last Sunday's JAS Zoom presentation by @jkejake whose antropomorphic art merges animals and figures in collages and streetart. His surrealistic art source late 19th century images.
Last Sunday's zoom presentation: Diana Kurz's artwork on animal rights through a Jewish lens.
Today at 4:30pm ET! Explore the exciting connections between art and architecture, ancient and modern, spiritual and utilitarian, and learn how transforming the environment through art and architecture creates change for societies and individuals.
The Jewish Art Salon wishes everyone a Sweet New Year, a year blessed with health, safety, and opportunity.

Yesterday we celebrated Tu B’Av, the 15th day of the month of Av, a time when mourning is turned into renewed hope and celebration. It is both an ancient and modern holiday. It marks the beginning of the period of spiritual preparation leading up to the month of Elul and the Days of Awe.

Growing Up Jewish in India, edited by Ori Z. Soltes, features artwork by @sionaware The book, which will be released soon, offers an historical account of the primary Jewish communities of India, their synagogues, and unique Indian Jewish customs. It offers an investigation both within Jewish India and beyond its borders, tracing how Jews arrived in the vast subcontinent at different times from different places and have both inhabited dispersed locations within the larger Indian world, and ultimately created their own diaspora within the larger Jewish diaspora by relocating to other countries, particularly Israel and the United States.
