Take a Walk on Mayan Side

The next time when you are on an evening stroll on La Quinta Ave (the famous 5th avenue), one of the most notable rising stars you won’t miss is the Galeria de Arte 5th Avenida.  As the recent years have brought with it much growth and attention to the Yucatan and Riviera Maya, the Galeria has ushered itself to the forefront for good reasons…
What sets the Galeria de arte 5th ave collection (*Galeria for short) apart from others, besides its remarkable location and display in the Plaza between streets 6 and 8, is its unique approach to representing the areas regional expressions of art.  As local artisans and collectors alike have sought to offer their work to view here in the heart of Playa Del Carmen, the Galeria offers a collection of paintings from the entire Caribbean and Mayan region, such as Taino and Tzutujil art, as well as offers display of local artists. The dedication and passion of the collector is distinguished by this unique quality in the group of works.
The Galeria’s collection also includes an assortment of more modern and contemporary works from this region while encouraging artistic endeavors in the community. And as an increase in demand has reached the attention of the Galeria, it has also made parts of its collection available to view on-line.  As the Galeria’s procurators continue their efforts, this is a must watch on the list of up and coming collections from the Mayan cultural heritage.
