Garzón is a town with magic. It is in the light that gives a special shine to each thing; in the sounds of the town, of children in the hammock at the square, of footsteps walking through its cobbled streets, birds and horses. The atmosphere feels like a pleasant summer nap. Space and time together. Clocks do not set paces. The cadence is unique and ideal for enjoying nature, good food, slow conversation and, particularly, art.
In 2014 we made a quite impulsive decision full of dreams: to open a contemporary art gallery in Pueblo Garzón.
The challenge of exhibiting up-to-date Uruguayan art in a place like Garzón was huge: a small town of less than 200 inhabitants, in the middle of the countryside, between gentle hills, streams and creeks, where there is no pharmacy, no gas station, no bank, no…
It is truly a great, inspiring and relaxing place. Sharing quality art has become a reality. Three international art galleries and an art foundation and artists residence have not changed the essence or identity of the town.
For visitors, the motto is to leave mottos aside.
Enjoy time and space, feel it on your skin.
We are waiting for you.
