The New Gallery Artists Studio has been part of the Jerusalem art scene since the turn of the millennium. It is a gallery space funded by the Jerusalem Municipality that has hosted dozens of art exhibitions by contemporary Israeli artists. It also offers local visual artists 18 large studio spaces at relatively low prices. There’s even an ongoing lecture series and a working, lithograph print-workshop. It’s located at Gate 22 of Teddy Stadium, in between the Pais Arena and Malha’s Jerusalem Mall.
