Art Tours

The Art Galleries Association (AGA) presents the start of its 2016 Galleries Circuit in Santo Domingo on Thursday, 18 August. The art gallery association offers free transport for the event on the third Thursday of each month through December so that art lovers can visit several galleries in a single night.

The event has the backing of the Ministry of Tourism and the National Hotel & Tourism Association (Asonahores). The three-hour tours start at 7:30pm.

For the occasion, the art galleries hold high-quality exhibitions that include well-known artists such as Jose Perdomo, Antonio Guadalupe, Manuel Montilla and Ramon Oviedo. Contemporary artists like Gustavo Pena, Jose Levy, Luz Severino, Miguel Ramirez and Adela Dore will also be featured and the gallery owners will be on hand to give expert explanations.

AGA president Mildred Canahuate has been organizing the event since 2009.

This year 12 art galleries are taking part:
Evaristo Morales: Galeria Bodden, Arawak Arte Contemporaneo and Guillo Perez Arte e Interiores.
Piantini: D'Guillermo and Lyle O Reitzel Gallery.
La Paz: Centro Cultural Mirador.
Gazcue: Galeria Shanell, Galeria Nacional de Bellas Artes and Museo de Arte Moderno.
Colonial City: Colegio de Artistas Plasticos, Mamey and Casa Quien.
