Here at Latin American Art Gallery (formerly Cosas Bonitas) we have always been drawn to Latin folk art and several years ago we began to search out folk art to share with others. For us, the term "folk art" encompasses practicality, beauty and spirit. We are excited to share this art with you and we are sure you will find that the folk art we carry is beautiful, practical and has meaning.
It is also very important to us that the folk art be acquired adhering to fair trade principles. Read about the various types of folk art we offer on the Other Folk Art page.
Finding our Huichol Art
There is a lot of Huichol art, but this particular art is special for two reasons: the smaller-than-normal seed bead size used and the fact that it is a fair trade relationship, assuring the artists a stable income. Read more about this art on the Huichol Art page. We are committed to making it available both here in the Northwestern United States and to the world at large through our website.
Come see our art in person!
We are located in Portland, Oregon. Some weekends we are at the Skidmore Saturday and Sunday Market next to the Portland Saturday Market. The latter is on Naito Parkway and Ankeny Plaza. The Skidmore Market is across 1st Street and the Skidmore Fountain. We have many pieces of folk art, jewelry and t-shirts from Latin America and it is amazing to see it in person!
We will be at other fairs and festivals as well so check out our calendar to find the weekends we will be there.
