Paintings, pottery, and other unique items that are made in Haiti. Large range of prices. No kitsch. In Old San Juan.

“Best Home Artwork in the Caribbean!”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a great place to find decorative pieces to accentuate your home. I have purchased wind chimes, wooden chest, ceramic sculptures, and exotic wooden pieces from this gallery. All items have been handcrafted. I would recommend those who enjoy souvenir shopping like I do to try this gallery out. Enjoy!

“Beautiful pieces”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I have been to San Juan a couple of times and found the Haitian Gallery about 3 years ago, I fell in love with a wooden wall sculpture of roses and bought it then. Last month we returned and I found a matching piece! They are just gorgeous. I am hoping to get there again in the future as they have exquiste things! Stop by and be impressed!

“So much more than a Haitian Gallery”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is a little gem in the heart of OSJ. I had read about this place before arriving in PR and was very excited when I stepped into the shop and found several paintings by J.B. Luisius a well known Haitian folk artist. If I'm not mistaken they also carry paintings by Pierre Maxo and others.
There are all kinds of little surprises from around the world. I was surprised to see a small collection of Chulucanas pottery from northern Peru, lots of African wood carvings and masks as well as beautiful glass blown art from PR, hand painted PR shot glasses, interesting bead jewelry and so on.
If you are looking for the usual tacky souvenirs from PR this is not the place for you. If you are looking for genuine folk art from around the world and PR check this little gem of a gallery out.
