“Unique offerings and Carlos is great”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We visited Carlos Weil's gallery and weren't disappointed. We saw and purchased some wood art (he calls guardians) that we haven't run across in other galleries/shops.

Moreover, Carlos took the time to explain all of the items he had there, which was very informative.

Even if we hadn't bought art (we purchased two pieces) we could have spent an hour or more just looking at the beautiful pieces he has there and listening to his stories.

Well worth stopping here if you are in Panama City. Note: He also has a smaller shop in the old city (run by his son David). We went to both, but the larger shop obviously has more inventory.

“A Real Great Find”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

What a treat, Panama City in many ways is starved for this type of gallery. Many very unique pieces, just take your time to look at the many paintings and original art from all of Central America but most from Panama artists. Well worth you time to visit.

“The history of Panama in 1 location”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Great works or art from Panama's artist and other artist all over the world. So many pieces exist from old bonds from the beginning of the canal to sculptures and paintings. The staff was so helpful and could explain the history of every piece. And if you wanted you could purchase the piece after you left and they could mail your art to your residence. Great history with beautiful works of art and history. Also, many restaurants are right next door. Great place

“Love art, love history, love Weil Art”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

When I travel I always try to bring a piece of art back home. While in Panama City I visited several art galleries and then I found Weil Art. What a treat for art lovers this is. Carlos Weil is such a wonderful host. He went through the gallery with me and spent time like I was a guest. I came across two small paintings by Ejti Stih that I knew were perfect for me. They were not of great cost but Carlos made me feel like I just bought great art.

“Wonderful collection and variety of art”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

When in Panama I really look forward to visiting my favorite art gallery. Carlos Weil is a very amiable and knowledgable fellow with a unique background. He maintains a great selection of artwork-- paintings from Central and South America, handcrafted wooden items and many other unique art pieces. If you are looking for the interesting, unusual, different, unique or even exotic work of art you can find a lot to be excited about at the Weil Gallery. THE place to shop for unique, one of a kind gifts as well. Warning: you will find something there that you will have to have.
