This two-storey gallery has beautifully displayed collections of work created by talented local artisans. The owner was happy to spend time with us providing background information on the pieces we purchased -- all of which were meticulously packaged to avoid damage on our way back to Canada. This is our favourite art gallery in Montevideo. We highly recommend it.

A wonderful gallery with two floors of exciting and imaginative art. The gallery staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Two beautiful vase sculptures by Irene Santa Cruz made it back to the UK safely as a result of very careful wrapping. Warmly recommended.

A wonderful small shop full to the brim with all manner of quality artisan fare. Lots of paintings especially on the second level. Good prices so it is hard not to take something home with you. Worth the stop.

This gallery was the most interesting shop we visited in Montevideo. Good selection of varied pieces of art. We bought one painting during our visit and liked it so much that we had another piece we had seen during our visit shipped to us once we got home - a surprisingly easy process. Staff friendly and helpful.

Several years ago we were here at this shop and bought a lovely handmade pitcher. So when we came back this month, we had to stop back and see if it was still there. YES and still the best shop around with amazing pieces of unique art and pottery available at reasonable prices. I proceeded to buy another pitcher to... More

I was walking around Old Town when I found this little art gallery today. It had a beautiful assortment of art pieces from different artists. I found the art to be reasonably priced and they had an upstairs with pieces from additional artists. The person working the store was very friendly and was able to answer many questions about the...

I recalled seeing the name of this local shop so we decided to visit. The items offered are made locally by many different artists. The shopkeeper and I spoke about some of the nude paintings (I collect them) and he told me about other paintings available and not in the store. I received an email a few days later as... More

Great shop, better than those that followed. Genuine locally made products at reasonable prices. Art Gallery upstairs was considerably more expensive but we found a few treasures (momentos) at very reasonable prices. Recommended stop

This building near the port is an excellent place to buy souvenirs straight from the artists. There are many sections and if you want to buy something, you will receive an order slip from the clerk. When done shopping, take these slips to the cashier in the back of the store and pay for them all at once. Your items... More
