A beautiful home, I felt very lucky to be welcomed into such an inspired space. Really enjoyed walking around and checking out the interesting work. Very talented artists and wonderful hosts. Bonus points for great animals too.

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.

Melva Medina creates bronze sculptures of strong women with attention to detail that would be home to any museum in New York City. All of her works as well of her husband, Abel Vazquez, tell a story and are amazing. This is the real deal. Take the time to visit their gallery which is also their beautiful colonial home. Melva is very gracious with her time and will explain her thoughts for each piece.

The art of Melva Medina and her husband Abel Vazquez combines nature and people to reveal and interpret the Mayan/Mexican culture. The gallery is also their home and workshop and I learned that they contribute to their community through educational events and art sharing. I had visited this gallery two years as just a walk-in tourist and loved it then, but this time went with Habla Language School as an afternoon "field trip." We got to meet and learn from Melva as well as choose our favorite pieces (very difficult to choose) to analyze and share our personal interpretations. A powerful experience.

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!
