Art at Behla
At las Behlas, we have started a collection of art made by local or visiting artists that will be displayed throughout our villas for your enjoyment while here, but is also for sale (largely by the artists). We will also host an annual artist residency, the first of which will be in 2012. Through the artist residency we plan to provide a forum for the creation, discussion and display of the arts in Tulum, as well as an opportunity to work and share for the individual artists.
Our first body of work is:
Tulum water colors by Kamilla Talbot. Kamilla Talbot is an accomplished New York painter who paints primarily en-pleinair landscapes in both watercolor and oils. She teaches at the Art Students League and the National Academy in New York, New York, and studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the New York Studio School.
