Owner description: We are an art gallery with a new concept located in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The principle objective of this concept is to reconcile the greater public with the art world, to bridge the void, and put it quality art within reach of every collector.We believe that the traditional galleries have closed their doors to new talents. The politics and high prices have distanced the public from something as beautiful and universal as art. We have the ambition to fill this niche by offering our clients original works of art, created by talented artists (young, emerging, established) from all over the world, with different theme and techniques for any particular style, taste and budget--as quality and creativity are the principle characteristics of the work.

If interested in bringing home a beautiful visual memory of Mexico then visit the Riviera Art Gallery. The owner is a delight and we were lucky enough to have been helped in our selections by both the lovely owner and Matthew from Texas! There are works by local artists and the stunning art work of Ricardo Campero. His works are... More

You can find the finest comtemporary Mexican art in this gallery. Experienced and very friendly personnel who give you the inside information on the artists and give good when it comes to financing the pieces of art you intend to buy. You won't find a better and everlasting Mexican souvenir elsewhere.

I am an artist who just found this gallery after living here for three years. It is a sweet gem and the person I met when I walked in was aware of the local art scene. It has many local artists showing. Charming ark, some very good, some mediocre. Artwork for every taste level. My only critique is that the... More

We stumbled on this gallery by chance and I'm so glad we did. We bought a panel that I absolutely loved. The lady at the gallery was really pleasant and informative . I would really recommend that you try and stop in and check out the displays. Especially if you are looking for something different to bring home from your... More

My wife and I stopped in while we were staying in Playa del Carmen. It's a small place, but with some interesting local art. We had a nice conversation with the person working there (who was very excited about the art) and bought a textured wall hanging. Very pleasant experience.

We recently visited Playa del Carmen and went to the Riviera Gallery on a recommendation from a coworker. Riviera did not disappoint us. There was lots of beautiful artwork and the prices were fair. The lady who served us was super friendly and, unlike staff at other shops on 5th ave, she did not pressure us at all and gave... More

I just received my 4th item form the gallery. The first three purchases was made in the store the forth was done completely thru email. The transaction and international shipping was seamless. Thanks you so much I will be checking the website often and plan to make the gallery our first stop on our next visit.
