GALLERIES IN CUBA

The art scene is mainly concentrated in Havana and Camagüey. However, there are also art galleries in most other major cities and tourist resorts, with the exception of Santiago. A gallery is often also the artist's studio and thus gives a good insight into the work of the artist. Established artists usually have their own art galleries. Often the artists organize themselves in collectives and present themselves together with others in an exhibition space. Good art can also be found, with a little searching, in the large craft markets, which often have their own picture department. Here are some tips for interesting galleries:
