I don’t know if San Juan simply has a concentration of talented artists, or if, as I mentioned previously, that they simply have their act together as far as encouraging tourism and commerce based on the skills of the residents here, but there about six or seven galleries on the main street from the dock. I haven’t noticed any galleries at the other towns we have been to, but perhaps they are simply more dispersed.
We had decided that on this visit that we wanted to purchase some paintings to go in our dining room and we ended up with three pieces that will look great there. We saw so much that we liked that it was hard to decide. I wouldn’t be surprised that on any return visit that we pick up a few more pieces.
Here is one of the artists working in his gallery and the painting that we purchased from him.
Here are the other pieces that we purchased from two other galleries. Next step is to get them framed and we’ve been able to get some good recommendations on a couple of places to do this.
