Israeli art Galleries
In Israel you can find many galleries that carry specifically Jewish & Israeli Art.
Jewish art goes back for centuries, but modern times have seen nothing less than an explosion of art in the Jewish and Israeli world. Both in fine art as well as Judaica, Israeli artists such as Yair Emanuel, David Gerstein, David Fisher and others have made their mark. Of course, the early 20th century works of Marc Chagall have stood the test of time and have only grown in value.
Extensive Jewish Art Gallery from the Top Israeli Artists
The art world has seen a movement away from high art and a return to crafts. This trend is certainly visible in Israel today, where you can find boutiques everywhere selling the local and the hand made. Part of this trend is due to an interest in politically and socially responsible purchasing, the desire to know exactly where our money goes.
Israeli & Jewish art Galleries are chock-full of local and international Jewish art, boasting talents from all walks of life who use Jewish motifs, biblical inspiration and ancient symbolism in their progressive works. Museums and galleries from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem host both burgeoning and veteran artists, showcasing their work in innovative and interactive ways. Here are our top choices for all those art lovers and Judaica enthusiasts out there.
