Art lovers can indulge in some of the finest offerings during weekly self-guided art walks held every Wednesday from October 2010 to May 2011
NEW YORK – October 6, 2010 – Puerto Vallarta is known for embracing the arts. From the many sculptures that line its malecon to the fine art galleries that house national and international works, it is hard not to be impressed by the dynamic arts scene in this town of romantic charms and authentic Mexican traditions. Visitors to Puerto Vallarta can explore the town’s numerous arts offerings during weekly self-guided art walks from October 27, 2010 to May, 25, 2011.
Art lovers can take part in this season’s Art Walk, and visit 15 galleries and appreciate the quality if the art exhibited. All participating galleries are located in Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town, making the walk from gallery to gallery pleasant through the cobble stoned streets of the colonial city, all framed with the Pacific blue waters of the Bay of Banderas.
Both local and international artists display their work within select galleries, and often times featured artists will make an appearance for a meet-and-greet on a select Wednesday evening from 6-10 p.m. The artwork ranges from paintings, ceramics, and sculptures to Huichol crafts, and unique handmade jewelry.
The gallery Artesanias Watakme will be showcasing a number of one of a kind pieces that are an excellent representation of ancient Mexican culture. These native handicrafts were created by the gallery owner who has a vast knowledge of Huichol culture and art. Masks, yarn paintings, prayer bowls, and beaded sculptures are a few examples of the unique art work this particular gallery carries.
