Since its grand opening in 1966, Gordon Gallery has played a major role in the emergence of Israel’s contemporary art scene by bringing today’s artists to the forefront and pushing forward leading names such as Yair Garbuz, Raffi Lavie, and Uri Lifshitz. It quickly made a name for itself, and now is considered to be one of Israel's best galleries.
When it comes to contemporary design, Israelis do two things very well: fashion and art. From photography and sculpture to painting and multimedia works, Israeli art galleries are rife with burgeoning talents and veteran artists, championing both local and international names. For even more art exhibits and specialized lectures on modern-day muses, spend a day at one of Israel's museums or even go to Ein Hod, a unique artists' village in northern Israel, and one of the country's top attractions.
