This Home/ artist's studio has stunning, original art and sculpture set in a lovely home. The artist and her daughter were there when we visited and it was a very rare and appreciated experience for me.

I am not an art aficionado but the works in this gallery moved me. Melva Medina and her husband Abel Vazquez create from their hearts with a Latin/Mayan soul. Their art is innovative and unique. I am so glad to have visited this gallery!

We happened accidently on this gallery and had the good fortune to meet the artist-owners. Later we discovered their art at the Museum of the city of Merida, very challenging and beautiful.
