The traditional art of South America is as varied as it is rich. From arts as ancient as pottery and textile weaving to colonial traditions of paintings and wood carvings, retablos and more. The art expresses the history and culture of the people and region. Native travels and imports from Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Columbia and hope to add more in the future.
