The crowd of people gathered on the Tel Aviv sidewalk outside the Alfred Gallery
for the opening of an exhibit by Dafna Gazit looked exactly like the throngs of
young people, in their twenties and thirties, who attend similar events at
galleries across the city.But scattered among this crowd, sipping
sparkling wine or soda on a hot and humid evening in September, were about a
dozen people who were more than just ordinary art buffs. They were all artists
who collectively own the gallery.
