 An interesting sculpture at the Si Senor's restaurant, beachfront
on Los Muertos beach

Painting by well-known local artist Ada Colorina in the fine art gallery Galeria Corsica (since 2002)
Ada was born in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco  in 1970.

She creates her works in her rural studio and permanent gallery, being inspired by the town, its people, customs and traditions.
    She "gives life on canvas to what she enjoys most and makes her heart vibrate",
and has been part of the Vallarta art scene for many years.

Terra Cotta and Mixed on paper on wood / Terra cotta y Mixta sobre papel sobre madera

 Painting by local artist Marenal from the old Galeria A.L. Arte Latinoamericano

From the Evelyne Boren opening at the prestigious Galerie des Artistes at 250 Leono Vicario street
downtown on February 22, 2013.
She arrived in Vallarta in 1972 on holiday to paint, and as the story goes, within 24 hours
she had met her husband-to-be and essentially never left -
hence she is the oldest living original artist in town.
Visit her website


photo thanks to Thierry and the Galerie des Artistes
Evelyne Boren apparently maintains a permanent studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico and also one in Sayulita, Nayarit
(just north of Puerto Vallarta along the Pacific coast) where she resides and paints during the winter.
I like the scene, the vibrant colors and perspective of the painting above.
