I bought some sculpture to take home and I'm so glad I found room in my tiny suitcase. I always try to find a little something to remind me of my travels and you can certainly find something wonderful here.

If you want to see the biggest selection of local artwork in San Pedro (particularly paintings and drawings), this is the place to go. If you decide to buy, ask about having the paint sealed with their special sealing method to preserve the paint.

An incredible selection of originals by Belizean artists with good prices and shipping options. It was difficult to choose amongst them. The staff were extremely knowledgable about the artists and their work and very helpful.

I stopped by The Gallery several times and could have spent hours more looking through all the beautiful artwork.

Pro: this gallery has a large selection of canvas paintings.
Pro: They ship any canvas(s) to US or Canada for $15.00US.
A large original about 40"x32" is approx $380 US. But,
Pro: he can do a reproduction of any original in any size for a fraction of the price and you can't tell the difference. This is a fantastic option and takes only 2-3 days.

Con: the smaller items made of conch shells can be found cheaper elsewhere. For example, a pair of conch stud earrings were selling for $15US here but the lady at the local market (by the ferry terminal on west side off back street) sold them to me for $5US. So....I give him 3 stars because he is obviously over priced.

A side note for all tourists: if you buy something made of conch shell (i.e. Earrings, ceviche dish, napkin holder) you can take it home. However, if you buy one of the polished conch shells whole, it will likely be confiscated at the Belize airport. You cannot take sand or shells off the island. But if they have been altered, they are considered "art" and are allowed to leave.

"Obviously overpriced"?How do you know you got the same quality on the street? What are the posts made out of? Our wood carvings look similar to the street but are completely different. Our paintings look similar to others but ours are "sealed" others are not. It "looks" the same doesn't mean it "is" the same.
