    Galeria San Francisco first opened its doors in 2015 in a beautiful space in the Historic Centro of San Miguel de Allende, overlooking the Parroquia. Susan Santiago, an artist and owner of the gallery, always had a dream of moving to San Miguel de Allende and opening a gallery, where she would showcase her work, as well as the work of fellow artists living in San Miguel.
    Upon retiring as an art teacher in Los Angeles, she moved permanently to Mexico and made her dream a reality. After three years in the Historic Centro location, Susan decided to open a second location in the Fabrica Aurora, a beautiful art and design center located, in what used to be, an old textile factory. A year after she opened the second location, Susan decided to move her entire operation to the Fabrica Aurora, because of its reputation as one of the most exclusive destinations in San Miguel. The Fabrica Aurora now houses many art galleries, artists’ studios, restaurants a bookstore and several cafes. Galeria San Francisco is pleased to be part of this wonderful cultural community. In addition to functioning as an art gallery,the gallery is committed to promoting education in the arts and therefore offers a large variety of art classes throughout the year, taught by experienced teachers, who are also working artists. Susan Santiago, the owner, believes that art enriches peoples’ lives and should not be a privilege only for the elite; that everyone has the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts, and to share in its benefits. The Art Gallery exhibits a variety of work, by both representational and abstract artists, all of it high quality and reasonably priced. Please Make sure to stop by the Galeria San Francisco in the Fabrica Aurora, when visiting our beautiful city of San Miguel de Allende.

      “Lovely gallery overlooking the Jardin”

      This gallery, owned by the very welcoming Susan Santiago, is filled with great art, sculpture, and jewelry by local artists. There seems to be something for just about anyone’s taste and budget. Additionally, they frequently offer art classes on site, and I just took two fabulous ones by mixed media artist Jane Dill. She is an excellent teacher, offering demos and practice every step of the way, so people feel pretty confident as they begin working on their final pieces. I was delighted with the work I completed, plus I have all sorts of information and material to take home with me so I can (hopefully) do more mixed media projects on my own. Both the gallery and the classes are highly recommended.

      This galley is a most stop on your “artists of San Miguel venture” around town. I always find something new there… and I love their variety of artists… along with their attention to fine arts!! Don’t miss out on this challenge to access gallery… the entrance is around the corner from the Garden… with a staircase in a store to access 🙂 I guarantee it will be worth the trip!!

      “Jane Dill’s texture and mark making class”

      Jane Dill is an excellent, inspirational and generous teacher. Highly recommend.
      She shares her knowledge and works well with the group and gives individual attention.
      Galeria San Francisco is a charming art gallery showcasing various local artists.
      It is also a wonderful place to take classes and is conveniently located.

      We visited the gallery with friends and this one is a must see! It is right on El Jardin and has a fantastic view of the square. There are works from multiple artists. All very talented. We fell in love with a couple of pieces and they will be in our house in Long Beach CA.
