We heard about the gallery from thela Fortuna hotel because we were looking for original art which was not packed with tourists. We visited the gallery on our way to Alajuela. There were enough signs for the gallery that we did not get lost. Once, we got there, we noticed Alfons was working on a piece of art. He greeted us graciously, and told us if we have any questions, please dont hesitate to ask. As we walked around the back studio, we felt like the owners gave real meaning to art because it was a beautiful location in the middle of rainforest, mango tree at the entrance of the back studio and many more trees surrounding the property.
Alfons went over the significance of native masks called Boruka masks in details. Furthermore, he insured that the gallery gave each artist full credit of each mask along with the earnings. He was very polite and eager to explain how he and his wife moved from Germany and have come to love Costa Rica. We had a wonderful time at the gallery resulting in numerous purchases which all arrived in a timely manner. We enjoyed the conversation and would definitely go back.
