There is a new art gallery in Quito, Ecuador. An enthusiastic gathering of artists and art lovers recently gathered to celebrate the opening. A glass of champagne in hand, I was there to recognize and be witness to the talent and the valuable cultural contribution this new gallery presents.

On the evening of 7 August 2012, I had the pleasure of attending a reception at the Galeria where I had the pleasure of meeting and seeing the outstanding work of Ecuadorian artists, including two masterful paintings by Nelson Roman, also in attendance.
I have also been fortunate to get to know the principals of La Galeria de Arte, Erika Strecker and Eddie Mosler, both accomplished Ecuadorian artists.
Erika is a tall, elegant, woman, born in Guayaquil, whose love of painting began in childhood. She pursued formal studies in painting and art restoration in Germany, following which time she dedicated herself to her artwork and study of the masters throughout Europe. She is an experienced business woman and lawyer; in love with her art and the city of Quito.
Eddie is a big man – a smiling Teddy Bear. Born in Quito, he moved to Quayaquil as an adult where his innate creative talents blossomed. Years later, accomplished, and with a history of exhibitions in the USA, Europe and throughout Latin America, he has returned to the city of his birth to join with Erika, opening their “La Galeria de Arte”.
Both Erika and Eddie had their own galleries before recognizing the synergy and shared passions that are now embodied in this collaborative venture.
La Galeria de Arte – Strecker & Mosler aims to present the work of some of Ecuador’s finest artists, provide a venue for exhibitions of the country’s crafts, and host various cultural activities and art auctions.
