 Buenos Aires Flea Market

The Buenos Aires Flea Market in Palermo is the largest antiques market in town and surely an antique dealer’s heaven. It’s a place where you can find unique furniture, paintings, collectibles, and more. I spent part of the day there but didn’t find what I was looking for – a painting by a local artist. I’ve seen paintings that I like at street fairs but wasn’t ready to buy. Now I am.

There are many talented artists in Buenos Aires. I’d rather buy directly from them, not through a gallery. I’m looking for a street scene that reminds me of this time in Buenos Aires.

Dinamica Galeria

On the way back to Recoleta, I stopped at the Dinamica Galeria in Palermo. Dinamica is a popular, stylish gallery. They process images using the latest methods.

I will try the street fairs in Recoleta and San Telmo again this weekend and see what’s there. There’s one piece at the Whitcomb that’s of interest. Most of their paintings are over my budget.

Recoleta Museums

The friendly dealer I spoke with at the Witcomb mentioned two interesting and well-known Recoleta museums. They’re on the agenda for the weekend:
