Art of the World Gallery announces its grand opening and inaugural exhibition in Houston featuring worldwide renowned Latin American artist Fernando Botero. The show will be on display from October 28th, 2016 to February 11th, 2017. One of the major highlights of the gallery’s debut in Houston is the installation of the monumental sculpture Reclining Woman with Fruit also created by the Colombian Maestro Fernando Botero and brought directly from Italy; this historical precedent will take place this month in preparation for the exhibition.

“Our goal is to enrich the community with an extraordinary art experience,” said Mauricio Vallejo Co-Director of Art of the World Gallery. “We hope our roster of artists and our carefully selected inventory of works of art creates a positive and memorable impression in the eyes of their beholders and the space it occupies.”

Reclining Woman with Fruit was made by Botero in Italy and it is one of only five sculptures of its kind in the world. The bronze sculpture, which weights 2 tons, will be installed outside the gallery’s window display, and it will exhibit at Art of the World Gallery along with many more of his paintings, sculptures and drawings. World Gallery is located at 2201 Westheimer Road. For more information visit
