I just acquired two extraordinary artworks at MLA Gallery. I have to say it was a very good experience. Mark and his way to approach and communicate helped a lot to gain my trust. My two Siqueiros arrived to my home in Sydney on time and very well packed. Definitely I will continue purchasing at MLA Gallery.

A must for all aficionados of Latin American Art from Mexico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, etc. Although Mexican masters, Rivera, Siqueiros, Orozco, are gone, MLA still offers artwork by Rufino Tamayo.
Artists such as Vladimir Cora, Ada Balcacer, Francisco Toledo, Wilfredo Lam, Baruj Salinas, Raul Anguiano, Francisco Zúniga, Frank Martínez, Rafael Cauduro, Zaida del Rio, Gisela Colón, Ramón Alejandro,
Fernando de Szyszlo, Roberto Matta, Raul Enmanuel, Gisela Colon, Theo, Victor Huerta Batista, Attasit Pokpong, Jo Chanchai, are some of the featured artists whose artworks are represented by gallery owner, urbane, connaisseur of art & oenophile, Mark Schneider.
I acquired an oil by Mexican artist, Macias, that I will retain for life. Perhaps there can be a way to paste it on the inside of my coffin lid so I can enjoy it in my after life.
Mark & Kenny are knowledgeable and will be able to suggest wise acquisitions that will tailor fit to a customer's tastes, needs, monetary resources, etc.
Visits by appointment only except twice a year during the Brewery Art Walk weekend. Also the works can be viewed on line.

We had a great exchange with Mark and ultimately purchased a large sculpture we saw on the website. The process was clear and simple, they shipped to NY, it arrived in the highest-quality packaging in perfectly good condition. I fully recommend MLA Gallery and will definitely continue my relationship with them going forward.

Great galery, excellent service. Full trust.

I had a great experience purchasing a painting from MLA despite not seeing the work in person. They were very prompt in their responses, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful with providing further photos of the work. Their pricing was reasonable compared to other galleries selling the artist's work and I loved the painting (Ramon Alejandro) when I received it, as they predicted.

Check out this wonderful gallery if you get to Artwalk on April 4 and 5! Definitely worth stopping in; some of my favorite Latin painters are represented here. I bought a great piece by Vladimir Cora for a friend a few years ago and plan to add to my own walls again soon. Mark is awesome to work with and the gallery is stunning. His manner is easy and he does what he says he'll do, is honest and reliable. He features works by A-rated artists! Hope to see you there!

Enjoyed visiting gallery and made a purchase felt like it's a place to see cutting edge Latin American artists work .Worth seeing the collect and buying high quality art there.
Kenneth Graham, San Francisco, CA.
This is one of the most enjoyable galleries I have dealt with in 40 years of art collecting. The owner is friendly, fun to talk to and easy to get along with. Prices are extremely reasonable and terms are fair.
The selection if you understand the specific focus of Cuban and Latin American art is very varied, unfortunately for me because I always find something to buy, and runs the gamut from famous surrealists like Roberto Matta to modern rising Cuban stars like Enmanuel. I just keep coming back!
Bruce Colburn, South Hill, VA.
We have purchased many pieces from MLA over the years. Very satisfied with our purchases. Prices are competitive . Mark has infinite patience and a huge inventory. I have learned a lot about Latin American art from him.
I have never felt any pressure to purchase...unlike my experience at other galleries.
Irene Rotenberg, Beverly Hills, CA.
Good guy with some really great pieces! Always a pleasure to see what he's got.

MLA Gallery is the art world equivalent to walking into your favorite bakery. There is always something enticing to behold. And it's always a pleasure. The gallery's focus is primarily Latin American artists - from renowned masters whose work hang on museum walls to established and emerging artists whose work is beautiful, powerful, and distinctive. The gallery also represents a group of truly impressive artists from southeast Asia, a testament to owner Mark Schneider's eye and keen appreciation for talent as his artists' works have steadily increased in value. The beauty of the gallery, though, is not only in the art but in the relationship you will create with Mark and Kenny Rousseau, who may well become people you count as friends.. Aside from sharing life, they will share their paintings and let you live with them in your own home before you decide to acquire, with no pressure, so that you can make sure your love for the work sustains, and they will share information on the artists, and offer their work below the prices other galleries publish. Visits are by appointment or during the Brewery Art Walks during April and October each year. I highly recommend a visit.

Excellent and professional attention by Mark and his team. I recently acquired through Mark and unique and beautiful piece of Francisco Toledo!!
Manuel Bermudez, Mexico City, Mexico
Mark and his team at MLA gallery provided open and kind service. Communication and accessibility to information was established throughout the art purchasing process. So glad to have a Ramon Alejandro fine print thanks to MLA Gallery.

I bumped into MLA Gallery through Artsy. At the beginning I was a bit hesitant of buying online, but their selection of Latin artists was too hard to resist. Working with Mark was seamless. He responded to all my question almost immediately, gave me a good price, and followed up with pieces similar to what I was looking for several months until he got what I was looking for. The piece was shipped very carefully and arrived in perfect conditions in just a couple of days. I highly recommend.
Jorge Echeverria, New York, NY
I enjoyed visiting the gallery and found the staff quite knowledgeable about Latin American art. We purchased a very unique and beautiful Tamayo mixographia print there.
Tom Duralde, Pasadena, CA.
I first discovered the MLA Gallery while searching EBAY for original artworks by Cuban artists. My first purchase was a wonderful print numbered and signed by Wifredo Lam. I have purchased several other works by other Cuban artists. Working with Mark has been a great experience. I highly recommend this gallery for its great selection of Latin American art and also for its reasonable prices.
Jorge Cervera, Round Rock, Texas
If you want to buy Latin American art, this is definitely the place to go. If you don't find what you want, then Mark Schneider and his team will find it for you. They offer a large variety of artists and works, at all price ranges. I am particularly keen of Rufino Tamayo, but there are so many others!
MLA is a fully reliable gallery and I had a very good experience with them.

MLA Gallery has provided me with professional services in both the purchases and sales of pieces from my collection. Always a pleasure to deal with.

Found an interesting artist when travelling in Asia, and searched for anything to buy, came across MLA Gallery in LA. Found a lovely painting and with fantastic support from Mark everything was arranged for smooth shipping to Sweden! This Gallery is highly to recommend, outstanding choice and service mindless! / From a happy customer!
Erik Wasstrom, Copenhagen, Denmark
My experience working with Mark Schneider and MLA Gallery was outstanding. Mark is very professional and knowledgeable. The gallery has an impressive collection of Latin American and Thai art. The transaction process was easy and his pricing seemed fair. Mark offered great advice on framing - or in our case - not framing. He has provided excellent follow-up service and communication. I highly recommend Mark and MLA Gallery.
Frank Lauterbur, Los Angeles, CA.
Acquired a unique and expertly framed print that I enjoy every day. Mark was great to deal with.
Andrew Tomat, Santa Monica, CA.
This is a wonderful hidden gem of an art gallery. When I first walked in I could not believe the variety of beautiful art from paintings to ceramics and even some old masks from Africa and Asia. I love that even after your first purchase they will send updates when new art comes available and I was even able to trade one painting for another one that I preferred more.
