Gallery Oro – Local Arts, Events & StudioReturning from an excursion to Playa Negra, we stumbled upon Oro, a gallery and store, that showcases mostly Puerto Rican artists and makers. A group show was exhibited in the main gallery, but for me the most interesting area was in the back, where artists share a large studio. I'm always fascinated to see the actual work spaces with drawings tacked on walls, paintings on easels, sculpture, jewelry and much more in various stages of completion.
The owner Sarah Patterson explained that her vision for Oro had been to create a creative community hub for the island, where artists could collaborate, inspire and support each other. In addition to functioning as gallery, store and studio, Oro can also be rented for events (up to 300 people). A rental unit has just been completed, so you can also book yourself a creative get-away, a self imposed artist residency ; )
