I'm not in that but and it's important. The lady who received us made us feel very welcome thats why i really enjoyed. She explained a lot about the stamps that they sell, the pictures, paintings and the sculptures made by the indians.

This was my favorite visit in Panama City. I learned so much about the artesanos, history of canal and artists in Panama. This is not a place for typical souvenirs to bring home.....skip those artesania markets and find this gallery (there are 2).There are also several pieces in the Canal Museum in Casco Viejo.
Carlos is an amazing man. His artistic vision is impressive. He knows a lot about the history of the country. If you are a history nerd go there.
Items are not cheap, nor should they be for beautiful works of art.

Nice colonial era streets, houses. The Presidential Palace is located adjacent to it.
A lot of remodeling going on. It needs a lot more work as well as tourist "attractions" such as stores and cafes, restaurants, etc.

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.

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.
