Givon Art Gallery

The Givon Art Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The Gallery was founded in 1974 by Sam Givon on Gordon Street in Tel Aviv.[1] In 1979 his daughter, Naomi (Noemi) opened the Givon Contemporary Art Gallery. Since the founder's death in 2000, the Gallery has been managed by Naomi Givon and is co-owned with her sister, Nurit Wolf, an attorney.[1]

The proprietor is Naomi Givon.[2][3][4] In 2012 Givon completed the architecturally notable renovation of an abandoned 1890 house in Tel Aviv's Neve Tzedek neighborhood.[5][6]

Artists represented by Givon include Pinchas Cohen Gan,[7] Moshe Gershuni,[8] Raffi Lavie[2][9]
