Buenos Aires Art Studio Tour

3. Buenos Aires Art Studio Tour

Art collectors know that having an inside knowledge of the world can lead to making great discoveries before the rest of the world does! Our Artists' Atelier Tours invite you into the working studios of artists in the world's great art cities - Buenos Aires, Berlin, New York and Miami. We let you get to know the contemporary artists working today, and have an opportunity to buy directly from the artists as a result. Your personalized service will begin right from the start, as a staff member will contact you directly about your interest in different styles, pieces and prices. This way, we can tailor your visits directly to what you might be searching for, and as the tour is a small group of no more than 10 guests, we'll make sure everyone has a chance to find that special piece for themselves. The tours typically run about four hours, and are led by the gallery owners themselves. At the end, we'll be treated to a private luncheon where guests can ask questions of the artists and their fellow patrons. The entire trip is coordinated by private transportation, and can include up to four artists and be conducted in either English or Spanish. The afternoon ends with another catered reception in our gallery, where you'll have the chance to socialize and purchase any work you may choose. Our goal is to provide you with a gap between artist and audience, and deepen your connection to the work you're about to purchase. Whether you're a serious collector, or just a tourist interested in getting a feel for the contemporary art scene, we invite you to enjoy this private tour and experience the wonders happening in these great cities!

It was just great! I had a chance to learn new names and enjoy the lovely walk down the Palermo-soho narrow streets. I would def recommend this tour to English speakers. The guide Mariano leads the tour very well, interesting and not boring. Thank you!

The tour was super informative and we saw some great art. Jacqueline our guide was fantastic, her humour was appreciated and she gave us just the right amount of information.

Fabulous, well versed and knowledge faultless. A must do to appreciate not just street art but how it is part of the national psyche. A genuine must do

Stephen was great. It was a hot day and he kept us in shady areas. We enjoyed hearing about the artists and history of Palermo.

Short and focussed small tour with Marianne (spelling). Knew her stuff and kept it interesting without facts overload
