Tel Aviv Art Galleries

Tel aviv Art Galleries
Tel Aviv is home to some magnificent art galleries of all types and sizes. Just to give you an idea of what's on offer…
The Tel Aviv Museum of Art is, without a doubt, the largest and most diverse art gallery in the city and is located in the cultural centre of the city on King Saul Avenue. There is a large permanent collection but most collections are temporary and feature both Israeli and international art exhibits.
The Eretz Israel Museum is a large, multi-disciplinary museum that is home to a collection of Israeli ceramics, glass art and photography. The museum is situated near to the Tel Aviv University Campus.
The Gutman Museum is an example of a smaller art gallery; named after Nahum Gutman, an artist from the beginning of Tel Aviv, is located in the Neve tzedek neighborhood and exhibits his paintings, illustrations and writings, allowing the public to catch a glimpse of this multi-dimensional character.
The Rubin Museum is another art gallery based around the art work of an individual artist- this time Reuven Rubin, a popular Israeli artist who was famous for his Israeli countryside scenes. The museum is situated in his house in the heart of old Tel Aviv.
The Rosenthalis House is worth a visit if you're passing through Old jaffa Port. Moshe Rosenthalis was definitely not mainstream and his vibrant pieces are displayed in an old Arab-style house overlooking Jaffa port.
Gordon Street is worth a visit as it is the location of many small art galleries, making the search for art galleries much more focused.
Another focused art gallery area is the Old Jaffa Artists' Colony which displays contemporary art and gives visitors the opportunity to meet with the artists themselves.

The Ilana Goor Museum is located in a building in the city of Jaffa that, 250 years ago, served as a hostel for Jewish pilgrims who were on their way to Jerusalem. The world-renowned artist, Ilana Goor, took it upon herself to restore this magnificent building to it's former beauty, preserving the beauty of the architecture of the building's era and simultaneously injecting the place with the vibrancy of the modern art that has gained her world-wide fame.
Ilana Goor was born in Tiberias, Israel to a family of doctors, many of whom were artists. She never studied art formally, developing her style along with her technique and resulting in powerful, emotion-filled works. Ilana has statues that are displayed in public places all around Israel as well as in private collections. She has presented exhibitions world-wide, currently has her work displayed in sixteen designer showrooms in the United States and sells her jewelry, clothing and furniture collections all over the world.
The museum presents a wide selection of Ilana's works as well as those of other Israeli and international  artists. The museum is the embodiment of everything that Ilana believes in- the fusion of old with new, the combination of rural and industrial, the mixing of organic an geometrical; all effortlessly and in perfect unification.
The Ilana Goor Museum has an usually homey feeling about it and when one learns that the Museum is, in fact, part of Ilana Goor's house, this comes as no surprise. The stunning art pieces; sculptures, jewelry, furniture, paintings and more, are thoughtfully placed around the magnificent building and the incredible view of the sea, visible through every window, simply adds to the invigorating breath of fresh-air that is the Ilana Goor Museum.
There is a rooftop café on the premises with a breath-taking view of the Mediterranean Sea, as well as a gift shop.

The Alfred Gallery is a cooperative art gallery that holds the works of fifteen artists who are all actively involved in all aspects of the upkeep of the gallery- including dealing with the financial side and general functioning of the place. The communal characteristic of the gallery creates a dynamic and supportive atmosphere in which the artists can display their works.

The establishment of the gallery can be largely attributed to the needs of the artists to be rid of the total dependence on the bigger galleries that practically dictate the Israeli art market, and from the recognition that the artistic center of Israel and of Tel aviv is small and closed. The gallery allows personal artistic growth for each and every member, as well as for the guest artists who display their works in the gallery. Additionally, the gallery enlarges the artistic sphere in Israel by widening the boundaries of the artistic field in Tel Aviv.

Gebo Art Space, established in 2007, was founded as a studio-gallery for Johanan Herson and Marlen Ferrer. Rapha'l Barbibay joined them and one of their leading principles is to offer artists who would otherwise not have the opportunity, such as those from the periphery, the chance to exhibit their works alongside established artists in central Tel aviv; the heart of the Israeli art world.

The Gebo Art Gallery offers a unique open space environment that is aimed at creating a dialogue between art and design. International artists and Israeli artists are invited to display their pieces here.

How to get there: Buses 7, 9, 18, 28, 70, 82, 120, 147, 149, 282
