“A must do in Cuenca”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Sonia Punin's Art Cuenca is a must-do while in Cuenca. This is a full service experience that will not only provide an insight into the heart of the art community in Cuenca, she will also enlighten you with information about the history and culture of the country. The (free) gallery showcases local arts with new exhibitions monthly. Sonia also provides personalized visits to artists' studios and galleries upon request, tailored to your tastes. If you are lucky you might be able to enjoy one of her well planned, reasonably priced, group visits to 3 or 4 talented artists. On these visits you not only see a variety of great art you also get to meet the creators and see how the works are produced. Don't miss it...

“Go more than once”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Art Cuenca is very special given all the attractions available in Cuenca. Owner Sonia Punin meets and gets to know every visitor. She also conducts private tours and scheduled group outings to visit numerous local artists in their studios and galleries. Sonia speaks perfect English which is helpful for newcomers and tourists. She is well organized and features all of Cuenca's to artists. We have purchased quite a few pieces from either her gallery or while on tours with her. In many cases we have forged lifetime relationships with the artists. Do not miss this gallery even though it is a bit hard to find.
