Art gallery near la fortuna and arenal volcano  galeria coco loco

Galeria Coco Loco is an art gallery located near La Fortuna-Arenal Volcano area of Costa Rica , feathering a wide variety of beautiful and one of a kind pieces of art.  Including, oil Paintings by local Costa Rican Artist, one of a kind hand made jewelry pieces designed and crafted by artists living in the near by town of Cuidad Quesada.  Tapestries  hand made by  Guatemala artisans include handbags, bedspreads,  tablecloths, and more.

The gallery is owned and operated by Ruth Deiseroth-Kweton from Germany.   She  attended Staedel School of Fine Arts in Frankfort, Germany.  Her art work is the centerpiece of the studio.  Her pieces are inspired by her confrontations and interaction with the cultures of Yemen, Saudia Arabia, and Niger where she lived and worked as a medical consultant before giving this up to study art of the Staedel School of Fine Arts.  Most of the time Ruth is available at the gallery to discuss her art.

Ruth and her husband immigrated to Costa Rica and bought a twenty acre farm, wanting to be close to the Arenal Volcano area.  They loved the climate, lush tropical vegetation, and the warmth of the Costa Rica People.

The art in the above photos is by Ruth and is for sale in Gallery Coco Loco.  Also the other photo is of Ruth.

Also Ruth has a cottage on the property which she rents.  It’s a one bedroom cottage.   Hummingbird Cottage B&B . You can see this on her website which you can reach by clicking the link below.

Location:  FROM SAN RAMON-On the road to the Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna — near the community of Chachagua.  Keep your eyes open and you cannot miss it.  It is on the right hand side of the road with a big colorful sign Galeria Coco Loco.

The prices are very reasonable.  My friend Renee and I stopped by and bought jewelry as gifts for friends back home.  They were one of a kind pieces, finely crafted and as I said not expensive.
