An historical perspective of the gallery
Well, a converted one of course, but still a "Barn".
Just as Michal Shibolet, the director of the Gallery and Dorit Talmon, the curator, presented the two new exhibitions, the image of a crowd of cows mooing amidst my work blurred my senses.

Bicycles passing by, carrying young and old habitants to the "collective dining room",
tables and chairs awaiting the guests under a tower like shaped building which was once used to store the hay , tractors and old signs of the members shifts still hanging on the building .
In the 50's the gallery building was reconverted to a storage house including a refrigerating room, later on, to a grocery store and at last to a Gallery.
