Galeria Pacifico

Galeria Pacifico was opened on November 27th, 1987, by its founder, Gary Thompson. The focus in the gallery is on the works of Mexican artists and a few foreign painters and sculptors being selected not only on having Mexico as a major residence but also on their level of reflecting the artistic sensibilities and historical antecedents of the country.

The gallery has always presented a fairly great mix of paintings and sculptures. A few special artists such as Brewster Brockmann and Hugo Barajas have shown their talent in both mediums. They both represent a trend where some artists originally from Guadalajara have made Vallarta their primary residence, with Roberto Vazquez and Luis Espiridion being other examples. Some artists such as Alfredo Langarica have continued living in Guadalajara while showing their work in Puerto Vallarta. That is also the case with Mexico City based artists Aida Emart and Virginia Aparicio, who show here with Pacifico but remain living in the city.

Galeria Pacifico also sponsors the free Malecon Sculpture Tour that happens every Tuesday morning at 9:30 from mid November to mid April, starting at the Millennium sculpture next to the Hotel Rosita at the north end of the Malecon.
