    This is a lovely gallery . Ricardo is a wonderful artist. I have bought his paintings and sold many! I hope to do so in the future and look forward to visiting with him when I return to Granada.

The Claro Oscuro Art Gallery is a small gallery that is filled with colorful paintings of young Nicaraguan painters, as well as paintings of the Cuban painter Ricardo Maya, who administers the place.

Here, visitors can enjoy a variety of figurative art: primitivism, magical realism, and surrealism can all be found in these paintings.

The gallery is open to everybody who is interested in learning more about, or buying, the pictorial Nicaraguan and Latin American art. The gallery also invites other artists to put their works on display.

The painters whose paintings form part of the exhibit come from all over Nicaragua, including Managua, León, Niquinohomo, Granada, Masatepe, and other places.

Getting There

The gallery is located in front of the Rock House restaurant.
