 Aldo Castillo, Founder & Director


For more than two decades, The Americas Collection Art Gallery is dedicated to promoting international and Latin American emerging and mid-career artists. Focusing on those from Central America. The Americas Collection offers a significant monthly production of serigraphs, which appeal to younger collectors. Their annual exhibition schedule consists of six dual solo exhibitions, six group shows and four international art fairs.

The gallery is located prominently in a new and exciting space in historical Coral Gables, Florida and dedicates its efforts to the endorsement of contemporary and cutting-edge Latin American Art in the United States.

The Americas Collection was founded in 1991 by the Nicaraguan family, Ortiz-Gurdian and currently is managed by Directors, both, Velia Larcinese and Silvia Ortiz.

The Family, Ortiz-Gurdian is also the founders of the Museo de Arte Fundación Ortiz-Gurdian in Leon, Nicaragua. A museum of high quality art that is often compared with museums of its quality and size anywhere in the world. Their collection of 20th and 21st century Latin American art is a real revelation! In addition, the Ortiz-Gurdian Family is a strong supporter and benefactor of the Central American Art Biennials.

The Americas Collection works closely with the Ortiz-Gurdian Foundation. This foundation was started by Patricia Gurdian de Ortiz and Ramiro Ortiz Mayorga and family as a not-for-profit organization. Its objective is to assist in the development of Nicaraguan culture, strongly promoting the visual arts. The Ortiz-Gurdian Foundation has endorsed a number of biennials over the past 15 years. The Ortiz-Gurdian Family and their foundation strengthened their ties and support to the Nicaraguan community in 2002 by establishing the Breast Cancer Program for low-income women, a program that saves the lives of approximately 600 women each year.

Changing their exhibits to once a month, a rotation that begins with a formal social opening, keeps The Americas Collection fresh and ever accessible to local and visiting fluent and knowledgeable art collectors.

Their Picasso exhibition at their previous location 2440 Ponce De Leon Blvd. consisted of twenty-nine lithographs from the suite “Imaginary Portraits” (on display for cultural and educational purposes only) was a great success! The gallery experienced many visitors to the exhibition; this was in part to its proximity to the popular Coral Gables Miracle Mile and its nightlife’s vibrant crowd.
