Belizean Melody Art Gallery was founded in 2008 by Melody Sanchez Wolfe a native of Ambergris Caye. The gallery originally opened as a studio for Melody at Crazy Canuks. Other local artists started putting their art work in her studio so she made it a small gallery, times were hard and because of financial reasons the gallery closed for almost a year and Melody and some of the other artists continued painting while working other Jobs and would display their work at local hotels. Melody worked in real estate for a while and with the money from her first sale re-opened the gallery this time on middle street and determined to make it work. After a year on middle street the Gallery quickly outgrew the small space and in January 2012 Melody re-located to front street in a very special location since it use to be her great grandmothers house where she plans to keep the gallery for as long as possible. Inside the art gallery you will find unique items such as butterfly art, slate carvings, paintings, conch shell lamps, unique christmas ornaments, jewelry,local spices, natural facial products and other unique items. The gallery runs like a cooperative artists put their work on consignment. Melody's rule is everything must be made in Belize with that being said you will not find any cheap made in china souvenirs with Belize stamped on them and she will customize anything for you hats t-shirts, ornaments and of course paintings. Stop by and say hello different artists volunteer their time but most of the time you will find Melody and her family there greeting you with a big smile.
