Located in the coastal city of Punta del Este since 2004, Del Paseo Gallery focuses on promoting Uruguayan and Latin American contemporary artists. The gallery is large, with spacious exhibition rooms and a projector to display video art. There is a lot of space to observe the pieces individually in every exhibition. Its busiest times are during high season, in the Uruguayan summer (December to March). It has participated in a variety of art fairs and organized touring exhibitions in both South and North America.
#tbt muestra de Gerardo Goldwasser en la Galería del Paseo en Manantiales, Enero 22, 2016 "El dibujo como repetición del gesto ancestral, el movimiento devenido huella, la ausencia del color como transparencia y memoria, incorporación y fantasmagoria. Los dibujos-grabados-marcas de Goldwasser son como instantes congelados de una historia de migración, concentrando los dolores de la fuga y la labor de un nuevo inicio: la construcción, precisamente." Verónica Cordeiro
First established in Milan, Photology was the first gallery in Italy to specialize solely in the photographic arts. Since 2015, the gallery has operated in Pueblo Garzón, a small town in the east of Uruguay that has recently gained a lot of popularity because of new investment in the area. The gallery exhibits only during high season, from December to March. If you enjoy photography, you can find some classics and make some new discoveries.
Galería Sur opened its doors in 1984 in Punta del Este. It specializes in the historic avant-garde of the Río de la Plata, but also deals with classic Latin American masters such as Joaquín Torres García, Fernando Botero, Wifredo Lam, José Gurvich, and Antonio Berni, among others. The gallery recently decided to promote contemporary artists, so there’s now a wide selection of works exhibited at any given time.
Xippas Galleries are all over the world: there are two in Uruguay, one in Montevideo, and another one in the main coastal city of Punta del Este. The gallery in Montevideo is open all year round and usually has more exhibitions and material to see, while the one in Punta del Este is a seasonal gallery that usually only opens during the Uruguayan summer and focuses on international contemporary art.
This is quite a traditional gallery, which is featured on the museums and galleries tour of the Montevideo Old Town. It’s a good place to stop by if you’re walking around the narrow streets of this neighborhood and would like to explore the art of the region. You will mainly find paintings by classic and emerging Uruguayan artists. Ciudadela Gallery has been around since 1982, having been one of the first of its kind to open its doors in the capital. Now, it’s a familiar name, and a favorite of many locals.
