Neighborhood: Downtown
Overview

During the wintertime, the high season in Puerto Vallarta, nine galleries band come together to offer free, twice-monthly Art Walks through the picturesque Downtown section of the city. The active gallery selection may vary, and no one is required to go to all of them, but it is a great way to wander the art district in the company of other like-minded individuals. Past participating galleries include Galeria Arte Latino-Americano, Galeria Arte Popular Mexicano and Galeria de Ollas. No fee.

  Yes, this is one of the premier artistic Puerto Vallarta attractions, this past season, on-going from Oct 2011-May 2012, there are expositions-exhibitions every Wednesday night from 6pm-10pm at these galleries: Ana Romo Art Gallery, Arte 550, Colectika, Corsica Galeria de Arte I and II, Galeria Caballito del Mar, Galeria de Ollas, Galeria Uno, Pacifico Gallery, and The Loft Galeria. Colectika is a new Puerto Vallarta Mexican folk art gallery from Kevin Simpson and the folks at Peyote People for the newer generation of artists including Jacobo and Maria Angeles, Julia Fuentes, J. Juan Melchor and Demetrio Aguilar, located at 852 Guadalupe Sanchez at Allende, near several other famous galleries and the Cafe des Artistes. A near complete and pretty up-to-date compilation of galleries and artists can be found at www.discoveryvallarta.com/Artgalleries-culture.html There are a numbers of galleries such as Galeria Uno and others which aren't technically part of the Art Walk but still are open during those hours and welcome guests. Look for a map of the Art Walk at your hotel or in participating galleries. I have done this walk a number of times, very enjoyable art scene and lots of variety. Unfortunately the Galeria Arte Latino-Americano closed this past year, they were around since 1998 and had a good space and collection....   Read More
