Are you taking about buying? Or seeing in museums/galleries?

Virtually all of the higher end hotels in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv have some sort of gallery (all reputable) and can also make recommendations. There is a street in Tel Aviv near the hotel strip, Gordon I think, that has many art galleries. Most galleries you will come across sell "traditional" designs as that is what most tourists want.

If you are looking for crafts /inexpensive (i.e. not precious metals) ritual objects rather than things to hang on the wall, there are lovely shops on Nahalat Shiva street in Jerusalem (just off Zion Square) and a crafts market on Tuesdays and Fridays on Nahalat Binyamin (yes, similar but not same name) street in Tel Aviv, near the Carmel Market.

Enjoy your trip and spend some money there!
