Galeria Merida

Galeria Merida features contemporary and fine art by local Yucatecan artists. The new location is in a renovated colonial, so several exhibition rooms have very high-ceilings and charming traditional tile floors. Farther back are two connected enclosed patio gardens where outdoor sculptures are exhibited. The very front of the gallery has a boutique featuring smaller art pieces for sale, along with postcards, note cards, small prints, and more.

The gallery is run by partners Paula Seivert, an expat from New York who came to Merida in 2002, and Ivan R. de Leon, a professional photographer born and raised in Merida. Galeria Merida opened almost exactly four years ago in another location on Calle 53 near the Merida English Library. Things went so well that Paula and Ivan felt they needed a largerGaleria Meridaspace to showcase and accommodate all the talent they were finding. Their ever-changing exhibits include painting, sculpture, garden sculpture, multimedia and photography. You might also find local artists using the outdoor space in the back for workshops and studios.
Galeria Merida now also features a cafe to enjoy a light meal while you are nurtured by art.
