To add a little something extra to the the section of our sister site, Rio: The Guide, that looks at the city’s museums and galleries, we have asked our good friends at Ronya, one of Brazil’s leading experts in sourcing, acquiring, and maintaining art, to come up with some suggestions of the commercial art galleries in Rio de Janeiro where you can find some of the best and most interesting contemporary and modern Brazilian art and discover new emerging talents.
Just click on the links below to go to the web sites of the respective galleries. And remember, commercial art galleries are a Brazilian way of life. You pass one, you enter, you appreciate. If you like something, and have the money, you buy it. If not, just look and enjoy.
