Known for his many art and music lectures, Guri Stark will present images and stories about 2 Israeli artists that were the pioneers of a distinctive Israeli art style developed prior to the founding of Israel. Nachum Gutman and Reuven Rubin’s unique style was influenced by their personal experience of building a new life in Israel. They portrayed Israel’s landscapes (Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem, Zefat, Galilee) and inhabitants (Yemenite & Hassidic, Jews & Arabs) in a sensitive fashion. The evening will review their paintings, mosaics, tapestries and books, their motivations, how they influenced the events around them and in turn how they influenced the art world in Israel. Along the way, we will celebrate and share stories about Tel Aviv, the first Israeli city, discuss it’s founding and reminisce about the early days of Eretz Israel.
