Attraction Details
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.

“Colorful and honest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

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 of the new piece which we ok'd. The artwork arrived at our home about 3 weeks later. All communication was done through email and the gallery was very professional about keeping us informed of how things were going. We would highly recommend this gallery to anyone as a place with colorful artwork and ethical business practices.

“Some nice prints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We found this out of the way gallery and bought 3 prints. We are very happy with our purchases and are excited to put this memory of our honeymoon up in our new home. Really love the Mayan Community art with a bird's eye view!

“Bad Art”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

This art is all over 5th Ave. it is manufacured. I have no idea how this "gallery" got such good reviews. The stuff is interesting, but you can find the same pictures anywhere in Playa Del Carmen. I'm sorry I am writing such a bad review but we went out of our way to find it, a d it was a complete waste of time. Go swimming while your here you'll have more fun.

“Very nice paintings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

They are soooo beautiful and with very interesting painting techniques. The "bad" thing about it is that they seem to be always the same paintings, I get to see them pretty often because I live in playa so I wish they could change them more often.
