We are a commercial space for the visual arts founded in 1984 by Victor Martinez.
We present exhibitions and carry out investigations of modern and contemporary art with an experimental approach and a total open mindedness to current artistic expressions. We also provide professional advice to public and private collectors that seek to create, modify and / or expand their art collections and investments.
Located in Guatemala City, an area with significant constraints compared to the possibilities of artistic production, we work with emerging and well-established artists from different backgrounds, whose art contributes to the reflection on contemporary society. With no media or technique limitation, we are interested in all expressions in tune with their time that allow a deeper and more conscious understanding of the surrounding reality.

Framing and conservation department
Sol Del Río has an entire department of framing. We preserve artwork against the deterioration caused by the passage of time, maintaining it as unalterable as possible.
As professional framers, we know how to give each work an appropriate treatment and framing, according to each particular situation, to the desired protection level and budget.
We frame original works on paper, engravings, lithographs, collages, photos, documents, certificates, oils and acrylics on canvas, textiles, medals, maps, objects with volume and all kinds of works of monetary or sentimental value.
As professionals, we assume the responsibility to preserve our client’s artworks in an adequate framing that protects them from harmful agents.
