Traveling is also learning, and in Puerto Vallarta there are many activities where you can get new knowledge. The city “has positioned itself as a vibrant center for the creation, exhibition and promotion of art.”
The art galleries in Puerto Vallarta are not recent businesses; For more than 60 years art has been part of the Vallarta scene, where original works were born and contributed to the image of the city, as in the case of the acclaimed artist Manuel Lepe.
Although the art galleries can be found mainly in the downtown area of Puerto Vallarta, there are also others located in the southern part of the city, in Marina Vallarta and some exhibitions at various temporary points, such as the shopping plaza Galerias Vallarta.
In the art galleries established in the downtown area, national and international artists are presented not only with beautiful paintings, but also with sculptures, jewelery, photographs, statues, assorted ceramic items, among other projects.
An excellent opportunity to get to know the art galleries of Puerto Vallarta and soak up how art is lived here, is participating in the guided tour called ArtWalk. It will be held every Wednesday from 6-10 pm from October 31, 2018 until May 29, 2019, we recommend visiting its website to learn more about this project.
Nowadays, visiting the art galleries and acquiring some of their exhibited elements is a very popular activity that has attracted the attention of foreign tourists. It is likely that when visiting a gallery you find that the person in charge of this is foreign.
