  • This gallery is about ten miles from San Miguel de Allende. The drive to get there is beautiful, and the effort is very worthwhile. The curator has carefully selected the very best artisan wares from States throughout Mexico and other locations around Latin America. There are old, really old and new arts and crafts in the gallery. Much of it is breathtaking. A stroll through Galeria Atotonilco gives one a sense of the many and varied cultures that co-exist in the massive landmass we know as Central America.
  • best collection of Mexican art I've ever seen!! If you're interested in both old and new art, this place has everything you're looking for - great prices too. Make sure to call in advance and let them know you're coming.
  • I like the information about the items. I wish there was a carrot take or something more about the artists.
  • Mayer and his wife Susan, have traveled to the most remote villages in Mexico to find the "best of the best" works by artisans. Its a real treat to go a few miles into the country outside of San Miguel to enjoy both their bucolic setting , and the marvelous array of fine crafts from all of Mexico. If you're lucky, Mayer will be there to share his bountiful knowledge and enthusiasm.
  • Fascinating architecture, wonderful collection of Mexican, Central, and South American art (pottery, weaving, sculpture, wood work, many rare and antique pieces.)
