Places To Visit In Puerto Rico

Gallery Galleon

Gallery Galleon
March 2nd, 2015

What’s not to love about an art gallery right in the heart of an island? Vieques in Puerto Rico has the Gallery Galleon, a haven for artists of various disciplines and mediums that specializes in showcasing oil painting, photography, and sculpture. The gallery represents an eclectic mix of artists who are renowned locally, nationally, and internationally.

The Artists Represented by Gallery Galleon

Some of these artists include photographer Mallory Parkington whose expertise is conceptual beauty portraits for women and girls; Gary McCracken who does woodwork and mosaics of sculptures, bowls, decorative and furniture; painter Rob Brooks whose art is described as “social realism”; and sculptress Judith de Zanger who infuses her sculptures with the philosophy of Tao, among others.

Contemporary and modern Caribbean art is what you will find at the Gallery Galleon, mainly because several international artists have been migrated to Vieques. “Above and Below – Photography of Vieques” is slated to open on the 27th of March, a group show that will showcase the amazing underwater photographs of the late Clare Mowbray, who migrated to Vieques with her husband Larry in 2004.

A Stable of Diverse Talents

Vieques Island in the 21st century is like Paris in the 19th century perhaps because Gallery Galleon has contributed to make it so by representing artists with diverse talents like Lindsey Molyneaux, whose driftwood sculptures are all of horses, Rosalia Frankel who does collages using pastel, pencils, and pen and ink, and print textile designer Jade Robertson who does limited editions of her pieces which she silk screens by hand.

According to Gallery Galleon’s official website, they also organize art events and their future plan includes becoming a fine arts center that will offer classes for new artists and conduct workshops by guest artists to raise awareness of art among the youth population in the Vieques community. Gallery Galleon currently has guest artist residencies, a program for students of island art, and classes on dance and youth art.

More Than Just a Gallery

Reviews of Gallery Galleon have been overwhelmingly positive. One reviewer from Brewster, Massachusetts found the place a “beautiful gallery with wonderful art.” A reviewer “stumbled” upon the gallery and found the artwork of Michael McGuire, who not only paints but owns a gallery in his native Massachusetts, and ended up buying McGuire’s premium piece.

You may want to check out the celebration of the International Women’s Day Expo on March 8th with a free concert by the popular Parkington Sisters or the free workshop on music conducted by Danny Parkington, the Parkington Sisters, and other professional pianists, violinists, drummers, and guitarists from Cape Cod, Massachusetts on March 9th.

Aside from being a showcase of everything artistic, Gallery Galleon, which has been given a rating of nine stars out of ten, is also available as an event’s space for intimate parties, corporate celebrations, and christenings, among other occasions. The gallery is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Take Route 201 on La Hueca, a mile from Esperanza to get to Gallery Galleon.
