Here, you can see a sample of all 50+ artists who have galleries in the Artist Quarter, which is why this really is the “heart” of the Artist Quarter. They are all expensive pieces that the artist does not really want to sell but if somebody is willing to pay the ridiculously high prices listed next to the pieces, well then the artist will let it go. This was explained to us by the guardian/curator of this gallery. The exhibition looks nice, even impressive. Although you will feel that in essence you are in a “museum”. Definitely worth stopping in, if nothing more than to get your bearings and a taste of the Artist Quarter.

This is the premier art gallery in the Artists Quarter of Safed. Many exquisite works of art - paintings and sculptures - are tastefully displayed. However no prices are displayed with the art, and if one is quoted a price - say NIS 12,000 - one does not know if this reflects the value of the work or what you, the customer, look to be worth. This quibble aside it is a pleasure to browse (for example - a wall of numbered Marc Chagal prints) and enjoy the ambience.

Although they had some nice stuff I wasn't taken away from anything and seemed a bit boring and quite expensive to me.

Response from Shelly B, Public Relations Manager at The General Exhibition Gallery

Hi, Thank You for responding. The General Exhibitions artist's are highly skilled, many of them had high caliber training in Russia. We are not contemporary art gallery although we do have a few contemporary artist's showing work in the gallery. We are also not a commercial gallery so the artist's paint what they feel and perceive rather than what wow's the customer. Each artist has his or her own quality and it takes time to really look and understand the art. All artist's are jury-ed and members of the Israeli Artist's Association. If you come again I will be happy to give you a personal tour of the gallery.

This gallery is a cooperative of many artists thus a great variety of works. Located in the artists quarter it is a good place to get the feel for the type of art for sale in most of the galleries in Safed. Recommend, Hope this helps.

has exhibits from different Israeli artists. one of the exhibits was a very powerful photography exhibit expressing the difficulty with the Purim story as understood in modern times in comparison to the treatment of women in oppressive religious regimes. another artist had amusing large 3D depictions of life in Israel. the variety was very great, with little connection between the artists, but each of the represented artists had a good representation of their art, with good area and placement. the curator did an excellent job
