In Venezuela, Acquavella is synonymous with the concept of art gallery, since it is one of the oldest institutions of this type in the country. Founded in 1954, it makes use of all the technological resources available to project its work worldwide. At its website, you can access the latest exhibition in case you have not been able to see it at the gallery. Acquavella has been the home to and promoter of works by important Venezuelan painters, such as Cabré, Castillo, Golding and Monasterios. It continually presents collective and individual exhibitions. At the web site, information about 14 permanent collections may also be found. Admission is free.

It houses permanent collections of artists such as Angel Peña, Irma Parra, Lihie Talmor and Paul Del Rio. Admission is free.
This gallery opened in 1995 chiefly to exhibit works and art objects from the Casa de Subastas Odalys. Located in a well-to-do area, which is at the same time distanced from the main body of art galleries in the city center, this establishment is an important meeting point for art-lovers and collectors alike. Monthly auctions include paintings, sculptures, historical documents, maps and old photographs. Entrance is free.
