Virtual Exhibitions: Shema! and Global/Local

13 Nov

Jewish Art Now partnered up with the Jewish Art Salon to put together two exhibitions for the Global Day of Jewish Learning, Shema! and Global/Local.

These virtual exhibitions are being projected at over 200 locations in 40 countries for the special event being held today.

The Global Day of Jewish Learning was starting in honor of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz’s monumental translation on the Talmud and has continued as an annual event to bring Jews of all backgrounds together in a day of study and unity.

View the exhibitions below and congratulations to the winning artists!

Shema! features the winning artwork of high school students in the US and Israel. Inspired by the Shema theme of Global Day 2011, the art reflects the intense emotional lives of these talented young adults and includes a broad range of approaches, from quietly contemplative photography to exuberant paintings. Media includes photography, digital media, painting and drawing. The gallery was created in partnership between RAVSAK, Jewish Art Salon, Jewish Art Now, and the Global Day of Jewish Learning.

Global/Local, open to all Jewish artists, invited submissions that explored the visual texture and vocabulary of the artists’ particular Jewish communities. The work deals with themes of isolation, integration, social and ethnic exchange and modification within communities. The gallery was created in partnership between the Jewish Art Salon and Jewish Art Now, in honor of the Global Day of Jewish Learning.
