For any globe-trotting BP readers who are in Jerusalem this week, you can head over to Artists Lane to check out the 36th Annual International Arts and Crafts Fair! The artists colony at the foot of the Old City, the home of galleries and workspace for Jerusalem’s arts community since 1969, is yet again hosting the fair, where you can meet hundreds of artists and artisans from all across the world displaying their wares. Everything from painting and weaving to ceramics and metalwork, with exhibitors from five continents, plus dance, music and theatre performances and special events like a glass-blowing exhibition and food fair, plus events for children.
The fair runs August 15-27th, and you can get all the information you need at http://artfair.jerusalem.muni.il/. More information on the Jerusalem Artists Colony, which is open to the public all year round, is at http://artfair.jerusalem.muni.il/
