Art invigorates the House
The 150-year-old House on the beach by Patricia Gelman Gallery is at the same time, a living room, Studio, classroom and community. The Paris-born artist uses her extensive House to the restoration and exhibition of flea market finds from around the world to teach in gold leaf and silver leaf techniques and local artists to accommodate six-month exhibitions by other. This mix of creativity, education, community and traveling gives the Interior a delicate and colorful style.

Who lives there: Patricia Gelman and your dogs Robine and PersefalLocation: Ajami, Jaffa, IsraelSize: 300 square metres; 1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, plus 2 studios and a gallerySomething interesting: local film producers and fashion photographers have used this House as a stage work.
The center of the House, built 150 years ago, is in the living room and in the courtyard. Her father played on the wing. This is the single piece that has Gelman at home from your childhood in Paris. The floor tiles were originally there. Memories are an important part of the décor of their travels and flea market finds.
Gelman has recently learned that the House was formerly a synagogue, and in particular times was inhabited by craftsmen. She has the feeling that the House was actually intended as a Studio. In the seating area next to the entrance are an Asian folding screen and a couple of chairs, upholstered in a fabric pressed by Gelman.
