The Mexican heritage or Maestro Gonzalez is undeniable in the Mayan inspired mixed media paintings on paper, while Mrs. Marinescu is expressing the Mexican experience through a personal perspective. Just 3 blocks from the main plaza, the gallery and art studio is located on one of the little streets connecting the North and South of San Miguel, Hernandez Macias 34 A.
