What’s on your “bucket list” for upcoming adventures in Quintana Roo? Perhaps a little food and dancing, some beach time and water sports, and a whole lot of music and culture? To check that last box, we recommend visiting the Riviera Art Gallery in Playa del Carmen.
Riviera Art Gallery in Playa Del Carmen Features Art By and For the People
The Riviera Art Gallery is a fine art gallery located in the heart of downtown on 20th Street, between the famous 5th and 10th Avenue blocks. They have original paintings, photographs, lithographs and sculptures, as well as native tribal handcrafts. Prints of their displayed works are also available.
While the gallery appreciates traditional art, the owners are committed to keeping doors open to the fresh — and often political — artwork being produced by new artists. It is also important to Rivera Art Gallery that art is kept in the hands of the people, rather than the elite, so they strive to price their art so there are pieces available for a range of budgets.
For the month of June, our fine art gallery in Playa del Carmen will be hosting an exhibition featuring the works of Davide and Diego Veragara titled, “Tukutupá Percussion.” Musicians Davide and Diego Veragara are part of a musical community in Holbox Island, Mexico. One of their goals was to create handmade musical instruments that also serve as art pieces. Their percussion boxes are beautifully decorated and are all for sale, so you can enjoy both the sight and sound of one in your very own home.
A visit to Riviera Art Gallery is a sensory-rich experience, and you’ll be hard-pressed to leave without a work of art in your hands. A stay at Playa Palms Hotel places you within walking distance of this cultural treasure.
