Gaston Charo Art Gallery Reviews & Ratings
The salesman, Alfredo, was so friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable too.
I happened to stumble upon the Gaston Charo Art Gallery while on vacation in Playa del Carmen recently, and saw a piece in the window that caught my eye. I had just come from the beach, so I was in shorts and t-shirt, but the woman who greeted me treated me like I was wearing a three-piece suit. She took all my questions seriously and promised to follow up quickly with answers quickly, which she absolutely delivered on. The artist himself reached out to me the very next day, giving extremely detailed and informative answers to my every question about the piece that I fell in love with. Hearing him describe all the work that went into the piece and his learning about the artistic decisions he made in order to execute his vision made me appreciate the piece even more. At that point I was sold, but that is not where this excellent experience ended. By this time I was out of the country and would have to have the piece shipped. He ensured me that he had shipped many works internationally before and even described the way he would package it to ensure no damage would happen to this delicate piece of art. He kept in constant contact after that until he knew the piece had arrived at my house safe and sound. The entire experience felt extremely professional, in fact it was more like dealing with a Fortune 500 company rather than an independent art gallery, their process and customer service was just that polished. I am a Sales Manager at one of the largest luxury automotive dealers in the country, and I was so blown away by the way I was treated during this process that I retold the story to my entire team during our weekly meeting, in hopes that they can begin to deliver a similar experience to our very own customers. Thank you so much, and I can't wait to visit again next time I'm down there!
This is the only place with real Art. I am amazed by Gastón Charó´s artwork. its original, unique and very different. I have the pleassure to have one of his originals and I regret not purchasing the big textured piece i loved because it was sold when i came back to buy it. If you fall in love with his paintings, just buy it!! He is going to be more famous very soon and you will be happy to get a Charó painting or regret for not getting it.
Wonderful helpful staff and amazing artists. Highly recommend!
A must see in Playa del Carmen for Art Lovers. Real Art, different, unique, exclusive and very good prices. Amazing artwork of famous artist Gastón Charó and other invited local artists!
