כפר אמני עין הוד Ein Hod Artists' Village
ספטמבר 07, 2008
The Hamud Elkara Gallery in Daliat al-Carmel is owned by the same family which sold the land on which Sir Laurence Oliphant built his summer house in the 1880s.
In one of those cases of serendipity, about 10 years ago, three artists from Ein Hod, Nechama Levendel, Nadav Bloch , were touring and painting in Scotland when they by chance met a marine archeologist, Richard Pryce, whose neighbor was also named Laurence Oliphant, a distant cousin of the 19th-century visionary. He introduced the Scottish laird to the artists who then invited him to open their new exhibition at the gallery whose family was so connected with the historic Oliphant.
