About The Gallery

It was founded in 1970 and soon became the most prestigious international gallery in the Caribbean.
We have done remarkable work for a countless number of young artists. Over time it has become the first and only institution
in the Dominican Republic to produce monographs that highlight the plastic work of great masters of national painting,
such as Plutarco Andujar, Clara Ledesma, among others.
