Owner description: Galeria Mar Dulce is a small, family run gallery specializing in contemporary and classic Argentine and Uruguayan art. Our gallery is based in the living room and patio of a former townhouse in the Palermo Soho area of the city. We show works by a wide variety of artists ranging from the internationally-known Daniel Santoro and Tulio de Sagastizabal through well established artists in the local field such as Ral Veroni, Lola Goldstein, Cristian Turdera and Isol and including 'emergent' artists like Maria Elina Mendez or Sofia Winazki. We also have works by classic artists such as Raoul Veroni, Federico Ayma and Victor Rebuffo. Classic and contemporary works live together happily in our little gallery as they do in our homes.We present two exhibitions simultaneously: a solo show accompanied by our +COLLECTIVE, which is a group show by about a dozen artists, the intention being to have on show a panorama of the best local artistic production at all moments.We specialise in small and medium format artworks but also have some larger works in stock. Prices range from U$D5 for books and U$D100 for artworks. We speak English and Spanish.

“A Must Visit”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Ral and Linda operate a superb gallery in Palermo Soho with an array of art ranging from prints and paintings, collages, metal sculptures and others that represent some of the best of Argentinian art drawn not only from Buenos Aires, but other parts of the country as well. They frequently hold small exhibitions where the visitor will not only meet the artist, but other members of art community. Ral and Linda are international and speak English. They are extremely helpful in describing the works as well as explaining their background. Galeria Mar Dulce is wonderful experience and a must visit on your next trip to Palermo Soho.

“Don't miss Galeria Mar Dulce”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

While living in Buenos Aires we frequented Galeria Mar Dulce and found it to be excellent. We added some great pieces to our art collection (Bianki, Turdera, Veroni, Santoro, etc). Linda was always wonderful to work with and the gallery always had interesting exhibits. We highly recommend a visit.

“Nicely curated gallery in Palermo Soho”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

I was so happy to find this unassuming gallery next to the B&B we were staying at in Palermo Soho. It has unique works from local Argentinian and Uruguayan artists. All of the art is also for sale at very reasonable prices. I picked up 2 great pieces already professionally framed for $110 USD. It would be almost impossible to find that kind of deal in an NYC gallery. The owner was also very nice, and went into detail about the history of the artists and their works.

In you are in the market for a piece of art, I would definitely purchase at this gallery over the more expensive, touristy items at the Sam Telmo market.

“Lovely little gallery”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

When in Buenos Aires, do go visit this lovely little gallery! It has original art work, mostly by local artists, that you won't easily find anywhere else. Linda, one of the owners, is very friendly. She told us about the various artists, their works and the Argentine art scene in general. Next time we're in Buenos Aires, we'll definitely stop by there again!

“A true find!”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Original works, mostly small in size, the easier to tuck in your carry-on! A postage-stamp size gallery that's packed with unique pieces from a variety of Argentine and Uruguayan artists doing their thing in diverse media. Linda, one of the owners, was super, sharing backgrounds about the artists and how she got started. If I lived in Buenos Aires, I would frequent the place, as there are always new works. I visited November 2012.
