Puerto Vallarta Art Mecca

Artists and Artisans

The arts and crafts of ancient Mexican civilizations are made today with artisan’s embrace of traditional techniques, folklore and religious rituals. With a wealth of raw materials that reflects the country’s geographic diversity Mexico’s crafts include an array of pottery styles, woodcarvings, paper crafts,  metalware, blown glass and traditional bead art and embroidery. Throughout Puerto Vallarta there is fascinating and captivating art to see. From street murals, many painted to raise awareness of the destruction of coral reefs, to the culturally significant sculptures that dot the Malecon and from the intricately detailed fine art and crafts of the Huicol to modern expressionist paintings, Puerto Vallarta’s are scene is thriving, and yet, intimately inviting.

 

 
 

 
 

 

Dedicated gallery owners like Kevin Simpson, of Galeria Colectika, have befriended the isolated Huichol and he has worked, for over 20 years, to showcase and market their exceptional work. Galeria Pacifico owner Gary Thompson, another long-time Puerto Vallarta arts champion, leads Art Walks on the Malecon weekly. He shares his great passion for Puerto Vallarta, and details the history and significance of each sculpture, including works by Ramiz Barquet, Alejandro Colunga, and Sergio Bustamonte during his tours. The provenance and the biographies of the artists add to the story of each piece of art encountered in the galleries, courtyards and streets of Puerto Vallarta. For the latest art news in Puerto Vallarta Banderas News is a great source.
