Beautiful art

Great art, original and prints. His stuff is all over town as well. Head down the hill for an amazing view from roadside benches if you've got a car.

A great opportunity to see a wonderful artist studio with a wide variety of painting styles. We saw some of his art (reproductions mostly) at other galleries in town. So glad that we went to see the original work. Definitely recommend.

We saw his beautiful signs on the road, and it rang a bell - so we stopped by. The very friendly artist showed us around (and loaned us his binoculars to view a nearby toucan) and explained his work. Great range of works from small originals (30 or 40 usd), standard size high quality prints (40 usd) and large originals... More

We heard about this artist from a local and saw some of his artwork in local restaurants -so we stopped by on our way out. He showed us his workshop and gallery. Loved hearing the story behind the pieces- it makes them come alive. We bought 2 prints and they will be cherished for the beauty and inspiration that they... More

After seeing his work in a local coffee shop, we were intrigued and learned his gallery was just a few minutes down the road. RW greeted us personally and took the time to convey his wonderful vision of the connection of nature to his art and specifically the region of Monteverde. We are proud owners of some lovely work soon... More

Located back from the road on lovely grounds, the gallery boasts a wide selection of diverse local arts. Maybe not something for everyone, but interesting range of quality and types of art.

We saw the sign on the road and stopped by. This is not just a gallery, but the studio where the artist works. My daughter bought a few small prints and the artist, Roberto Wesson, told us about his work and even showed us his beautiful wood house next door. Well worth a visit.

Thank mayasl
