Estudio Arte 8
It’s almost impossible to stumble upon this gallery just by walking the crowded streets of Las Mercedes. Estudio Arte 8, tucked away on the second floor of the Edificio Elkano, is a real hidden gem for those who enjoy contemporary art. Within just a few years of activity and thanks to the experience of its curators, Estudio Arte 8 has exported Venezuelan and Southern American talent all over the world, and taken part in exhibitions in London, New York, Miami and the Dominican Republic. From the recombined photography of Dalia Ferreira, to the constructivist paintings of Ricardo Goldman, or the sinuous shapes of Marcelo Wong’s sculptures, this gallery offers excellent examples of the artistic landscape of contemporary Venezuela. With other activities ranging from consulting for art collectors, lectures and educational projects related to plastic arts, Estudio Arte 8 is a true oasis of peace within the chaos of Las Mercedes.
