Berta’s & Mina’s Antiquities information
This cluttered gallery, with paintings seemingly tumbling out onto the sidewalk, specializes in regional folk art, especially the works of the late Nilo Lanzas, whose daughter operates the shop. Lanzas began painting at 63 and produced an impressive body of work, most of it of an outsider art/religious bent, up until his death. Museums and serious collectors have snatched up many of Lanzas’ paintings already, but there are dozens of nice pieces, all very eye-catching and worthy of homes. Lanzas’ work is, in fact, very easy to like. His daughter, Mina, also paints and her works show alongside her father’s and a few other artists from the city and its surrounds.
