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. « less

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.

We meet Vanessa who was bright and helped us over a couple of visits being back memorable pieces. If only to have a larger budget to bring a large piece home. Mayan art is very cool. The dolls are great for young girls to have brought back. Fairly priced and all in USD, including change.

The owners stayed in touch with me about the delivery process and they made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommend stopping in here while in Playa! Then go next door for... More

This gallery had very colorful artwork and that drew us in. We found a piece we liked but it was too small so the owner listened to what we wanted and said the artist would make us a custom piece. We paid a downpayment and headed back to the USA. Within 2 weeks we had an email with a drawing... More
