A Chat with Nica Ceramic Art
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Gallery Nica showcases internationally-acclaimed, award-winning ceramic art and pottery from masters such as Santiago Gutierrez, Gregorio Bracamonte, and other artisans primarily from San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua. Santiago has won numerous awards for his finely crafted native and contemporary pottery/ceramic art, including most recently the: • Best in Show – Durham’s Centerfest • Best in Show – Armonk, NY Outdoor Art Show • Best in Show – Bethesda Row Arts Festival. Gallery Nica also contains work by other master artisans of Santiago’s village, including artist showcased at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in New York, NY.
What is the experience customers can expect?
This event includes a fabulous ‘wine & cheese’ party to celebrate the Grand Opening of Santiago’s exhibit at the gallery. While relaxing with a selection of fine wines and refreshments, you’ll have the opportunity to meet Santiago, ask questions about his contemporary and native ceramic art, and mingle with other local art lovers. The delicious assortment of fine wines, cheeses and other refreshments are provided by local wineries. Admission includes all wine & cheese during the event as well as a special 30% discount coupon for ceramic art by Santiago and the other master artists showcased at the Gallery.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The gallery was started by owner Paul H Devoti based on his experience in the Peace Corps over 20 years ago. The gallery encompasses a collection of master works by artisans who have traveled the Americas over the past several years. The mission of the gallery is to share the museum quality work of the Nicaraguan pueblo and to educate the public regarding the cultural and contemporary art of the Nicoyan Indians. The gallery is located next to Saks Fifth Avenue in Triangle Town Center, Raleigh, NC.
