The summer is here! The season was jam-packed with opening exhibitions, concerts and workshops, and thanks to all of you- our visitors, clients and art collectors for helping make this past season such a great success both in the gallery & in the custom frame studio.

We truly appreciate your business and your support!

Now for some summer news…

Who knew we were Influencers? Very exciting to be chosen and interviewed for The Cape, A Thompson Hotel’s blog as a Cabo Influencer! I answer questions on my favorite restaurants (mostly my favorite taco joints) in town and how I would do Art Walk. Thank you to the folks at The Cape for thinking of me and the gallery, it was an honor to be chosen! Below is a link to the article and to The Cape, A Thompson Hotel’s website. A gorgeous, hip and unique hotel!

Now that walking around town in the middle of the day has started to feel like walking on the surface of the sun, we have decided to change our hours for the month and will be closed during the hottest part of the day and staying open a little bit later at night. We will not have regular hours either for the months of August and September, but someone will always be available to open the doors, turn on the lights and show you around. So please do not hesitate to contact us to let us know you want to come by. We love seeing friendly and familiar faces always, but especially during the summer!

We are kidding…but not really. Now that school is out, you never know who will be the one to welcome you to the gallery! The air conditioning in the Frame Studio seems to attract all sorts, both of the 2 legged and 4 legged variety. But in all seriousness, the Custom Frame Studio is open and with our huge selection of in-stock mouldings and mats, your framing can be completed quickly. The summer is a great time to get it done before the season gets busy. And really, is there any better way to choose your frame package than while listening to a little AC/DC in the AC?

This past season we changed things up in the frame shop and placed a bulk order of over 50 different moulding profiles in blacks, silvers, golds and various wood-tones and styles and hundreds of colors of mats, with the idea of being able to get projects complete and hung on our client’s wall as fast as possible without having for you to wait for the importation and shipping of the materials. We know that a lot of our clients travel back and forth to Cabo and would like their art framed and hung as fast as possible to enjoy while they are here! And yes, that’s an original Diego Rivera watercolor that Pete is framing in the above photo. Talk about white-glove treatment!

As home owners and business owners in Los Cabos, we hope that we NEVER have another Odile (the thought sends chills down my spine actually), but after having experienced a storm like that and the aftermath we now have proved, through our own experience in the gallery how best to protect our art and how to pack it properly for the summer months. We have been asked by clients to go into their homes and “summerize” their art so in case of a big one, there will be little to no damage. If you would like us to do this in your home, or wrap, pack specific pieces that are more vulnerable, just let us know, we can work with your property manager if you have already left town.

Oh, I just LOVE this game!! “There was this piece… it had a lot of red, it was pretty small, with a kind of skeleton face on it? And there was a hammock and some candles…”

TEST ME! I can guess the piece you fell in love with this season!
And I will send you info, an image, shipping cost and
the best price possible I can offer on it.
