Sommer Contemporary Art

A quietly elegant villa steeped in history near the Neve Tzedek end of Rothschild Boulevard is home to Sommer Contemporary Art.  The gallery was founded in 1999 by Irit Fine Sommer and moved to its current premises in 2005.  On the day we visited there were two simultaneous exhibitions on show one entitled, "Center of Gravity by Lihi Turjeman" and the other entitled, "Corrugated Works by Michael Argov."  The works of both artists will be on show from 8 September 2016 until 22 October 2016.  

There was also a library as you came in through the door on the right hand side.  It was interesting to note that the various tomes and scholarly books on art and architecture were displayed according to the colour of the detachable outer cover/dust jacket of the book.  
The shelves displaying the books created a rainbow effect and contributed to the eclectic mix of art works on show.
