Attention art aficionados: The Gallery in Altos de Chavón opened on Thursday, July 15th after months of being closed due to the pandemic with a wonderful art collection that is available for sale that helps support the Chavón School of Design scholarship program.
The exhibition is composed of student, graduate, and faculty work as well as pieces by artists-in-residence over the years. Many beautiful works are on display, but a good few are treasures yet to be picked up and some even dated back to the 1950s — as is the case for two large-scale, folk-figure totems hand-carved from mahogany trees by Gaspar Mario Cruz.
This collection has something for everyone. A wide price range allows art enthusiasts of all kinds to find many works to suit their budgets, and the sales go to such a worthy cause. Take an afternoon for yourself to experience the magic of Art in Altos de Chavón. The collection extends to small clay statues, photography, print works, pottery, structural designs, landscapes, and much more.
Many works have already been sold, so get them while they are hot! Don’t let the opportunity pass you by, and help support the students and artists in this village we call home. The Gallery is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and closes Sundays.
Below are some of the works on display:
