GALLERY - Sala Ángel Rubén Garrido is the smaller of the two Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana (CCE) art galleries in Loja.  Together with its sister gallery, Sala Eduardo Kingman also on Valdivieso street (3 blocks south), the exhibition spaces carry out the cultural mission conceived by famous Lojano journalist and diplomat, Benjamín Carrión. 

On the corner of Colón and Bernardo Valdivieso Streets, and named in honor of one of the most prolific and well known local artists of the 20th century, the Ángel Rubén Garrido gallery is a hotspot of frequently changing shows highlighting up and coming talent in Loja's visual arts.  The quality of the exhibits is due to the persistence of the gallery's current curator, Diego Villavicencio, who leaves no stone unturned in his quest to find the best new talent in and around the city. 

Sala Ángel Rubén Garrido Colón and Bernardo Valdivieso Streets, is open to the public 9 am to 1 pm, Monday to Friday.
