Description:

Get an authentic experience and buy unique and traditional art directly from the source!

In this tour, you will meet the artist Vincent who specializes in traditional hand carved and painted alebrijes which this region is famous for producing. You will learn about the style of art, where it originated, the meaning behind it, have the opportunity to ask Vincent questions, and of course shop/view 3 gallery rooms full of his art right there on his farm.

It is a very colorful and nature-inspired style of art. There are mostly many hand-carved wooden sculptures that are then hand painted with the utmost level of detail, but there are some other art products as well.

Whether you are an art lover or just want to try something new, this is a fun, quick, and casual activity that will give you insights to the art culture in the region and a view of the rustic artisanal way of life. It's also one of the best opportunities you can have to purchase amazing works of art for an extremely reasonable price! Also, Vincent is open to doing custom work as well, so if you have a creative idea in mind that you want to bring to life, this could be an option as well.

If you have any questions or want to check a specific availability, just send me a message or "request availability" above. Looking forward to sharing this unique experience with you!

 

 

Duration:

2 hours (roughly)

Details and logistics:

We will meet at Llano Park in the center and take a taxi out to Vincent's village. After the tour, we will return to Llano park or a destination of your choice in the center. 

It takes about 30 minutes each way to get to the farm depending on traffic. Then we will stay there enjoying the art and talking to Vincent for about 45 minutes give or take. (total time is about 1 hour and 45 minutes for the trip).

Taxi costs and food are not included in this offer.

The price is per group. If you have more than 3 people in your group we will need to take two taxis, FYI. If you have your own rental car, we can take that instead if you'd like.

Availability:

This offer is available 7 days a week, during normal business hours. Both my personal schedule and Vincent's will need to be confirmed, but it usually is not difficult to find a day and time that works for all parties!

 

Some Extras

  • We can stop for a traditional lunch in the pueblo where Vincent lives for $20
