We went here three times before we could make a decision of which painting we wanted to purchase...and I'm so glad we did. We ended up purchasing one painting and one ceramic tile. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They ship your artwork to you. And you never know what you are going to see when you enter. They... More

Beautiful gallery with many choices. They will ship home any artwork purchased. I purchased a painting there last year and love to look at it as a reminder of a wonderful vacation.

Great selection of local (Caribbean) art and local artist, who sometimes hang out here. Not large but worth the climb up about 14 steps. Never know what you'll walk out with. They do ship stuff home and it's good stuff. We have five pictures from Bajo El Sol in our home.

I stopped in here to take a break from shopping and from the heat. On my budget, I knew I would not be purchasing anything in a gallery, but I thought it would be nice to view some local artists' work. In addition to viewing the work however, I had a wonderful conversation with the gallery manager (I believe he... More

Bajo el Sol Gallery is the most wondrous place. I love every piece of art I have purchased here: the hand turned wood bowl, the copper and glass mobiles, the colorful oil painting, and best of all the lovely pastels I am fortunate enough to have in my possession. Each and every piece created by an artist who calls St... More

Great gallery for the best sampling of local artists work including paintings, photography, pottery, jewelry and wood sculpture. Located in Mongoose Junction right in Cruz Bay.

We never leave our favorite island without at least one visit to Baja El Sol gallery. It has s quiet serenity that makes it a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle below it in Mongoose Junction. It also features some of the best - if not the best - local artists on St.John whose works include oils, water colors,... More

Owner was very helpful and friendly. Bought Caroline Rogers' beautiful photo books there so we can enjoy the reefs and mangroves even without getting wet.

We like bringing a bit of the... More

The owners Tom and Livy Hitchcock have managed this gallery for many years. She is an artist. They feature a range of local art, photographs, glasswork, and high quality crafts. Prices are reasonable, and we've purchased many items to take back with us to remember our time on St. John. This is located in Mongoose Junction.
