“Very nice stuff to see”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The art work is incredible, there was one piece that I would have loved to take home with me but at 9000 CUC it's outside my price range. We really enjoyed the visiting the gallery there are a few prints that were closer to our price range. This is the first gallery we visited that had outside Cuba prices for art.

Worth a visit but expect to pay prices you would see at home, not prices you would expect to see in Cuba.

“Must see in Camaguey if you like art”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

I loved the gallery and bought a picture here.Some lovely ceramics - a real treasure trove. Many of her works celebrate women, including a fun female version of Brussel's 'mannequin pis' Outside are some statues of ordinary Cubans. The original model for the man on the bench reading his paper often joins his alter ego and poses for photos for a CUC or two. The group of women gossiping has an empty chair for you to join in the conversation. Even the bici taxis that took us there were decorated by Martha.

“Lovely gallery”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

The old colonial building is furnished not only with the artwork of Matha Jimenez, but also lovely decorated with antiques and has a beautiful atrium. The artwork can be purchased there.

“Very interesting sculpture.”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

In a quiet plaza, a bit far from the noisy centre you can find this galeria full with nice sculpture, from a artist who is said that have done much for Camaguey restoration.
