Owner description: In the heart of Merida's Historic Center, Casa Estudio was born and continues to grow. It has evolved into a place where contemporary visual art and the solemn elegance of colonial architecture converge, creating an environment at once original and distinguished for its extensive collection of beautiful and masterfully done paintings, sculpture. drawings and prints.

“A "Must See" Gallery in Merida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

If you love beautiful, creative art that really depicts all the emotions of the heart - missing this wonderful gallery would be a pity! Every drawing, every painting, every sculpture is a bold composition that draws you in, leading you to discover the complex emotions it contains. Plus the gallery is housed in a picturesque restored colonial space and you may get a chance to visit with Melva or Abel - which is a joy. Find out more about them on their website at: http://www.artistsinmexico.com/index.html

“Chance to see some great Mexican art and speak with the artists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Such a fascinating gallery to visit, very near the Paseo Montejo! The artist couple, Abel Vasquez and Melva Medina exhibit an impressive collection of paintings, sculpture and pencil/charcol drawings in a beautiful space. We learned a lot about their work and their inspiration in creating such a vast array of pieces, many quite large. Here is a link to their website http://www.artistsinmexico.com/index.html which provides a great background on their work and a sample of their art work. Would highly recommend a visit to their gallery while you are in the area. Their collections are now held internationally and they have exhibited throughout Mexico.

“Stunning artwork in old colonial home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Happened upon this amazing gallery near the Santa Ana Plaza in Merida. It is run by a charming husband and wife (Abel Vasquez and Melva Medina) It contains their extensive artwork of large oil paintings and beautiful bronze sculptures. Both are Mexican though not from Merida and have had a lot of international recognition. The pieces are of the highest quality and exhibited in a beautiful tiled home with a traditional flowered center patio. This is a must see if you enjoy Mexican art. Their website is artistaenmexico.com.

“Love Mexican art? Go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Nahualli is the home and studio of two famous Mexican artists. The big canvases by Abel Vasquez, are especially enchanting. He works in luscious rich colors on a sand base. Undulating and mysterious spirits and birds and guitars float by. Hard to describe! Go see them!
Near Santa Ana in El Centro.

“Thought provoking art gallery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

A not to be missed art gallery on Calle 60 in Merida, diagonally across from the Sta Ana church, which features the sculpture, painting and mixed media work of owners Melva and Abel. We enjoyed the strong figurative work, wonderful symbolism and colours of their striking pieces, particularly some of the ones which were done three dimensionally in bronze then repeated in black and white on the walls. The gallery itself is set in a wonderfully restored turn of the century house. Definitively worth a visit if you enjoy visual art.
