How to Create a Judaica Art Gallery in Your Home

By Leiba Estrin

The art on the walls of your home should remind you of the people you love, the things that you cherish, and the values that you hold dear. That’s why we think every Jewish home should incorporate Judaica art, and a gallery wall is the perfect way to display your collection. Here are our favorite tips and tricks for creating a gallery wall that lets you display all of your favorite art pieces. Consider installing wall shelves for your gallery.

1. Consider installing wall shelves for your gallery.

We like using wall shelves because it makes it easy to display unconventional art objects, like menorahs and seder plates. It also allows you to easily swap pieces as the seasons, and your collection, evolve and change. We like these wall shelves from Ikea, West Elm and Etsy. You can also go with a more traditional gallery and hang your art directly on your walls.

2. For a more cohesive look, group your art by similar colors and tones.

Use the decor of the room, or the season of the year as inspiration. For example, cool blues and whites will complement a grey sofa and will feel beachy and refreshing during the warm spring and summer months.

3. For a more eclectic look, mix and match frames of different shapes and sizes.

If your style is bolder and more maximalist, you can mix and match imagery with different color palettes and frames of different shapes and sizes. The trick is to anchor your wall with two or three key pieces and then build out the gallery around those. Incorporate your Jewish art into a gallery with family photos, and other art that you love. Your Judaism fits in seamlessly with all of the other parts of you and your life, and your Judaica art should too.
