HISTORY & FOUNDER


Celebrating our 23nd Anniversary, Obra Galería – Alegría was founded by José E. Alegría in 2000; However, this gallery’s collection of works and core values stem from three generations of a family deeply rooted and committed to Puerto Rican culture and its historical patrimony.  Beginning with José’s grandfather, José S. Alegría, who painted alongside Francisco Oller and Fernando Díaz Mackenna the love for art and culture passed onto his children.  Throughout the 50’s until the 80’s José’s uncle, José “Popi” Alegría, owned and ran one of the top art galleries on the island; José’s father was a leading art collector.  Also, often referred to as the “Father of Puerto Rican Culture”, his other uncle was the esteemed Don Ricardo Alegría, who founded the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña or the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture (ICP).

Considering the family history, it is not surprising to learn that a young José Alegría had a profound appreciation for art and culture.  He began collecting Latin-American works of art from an early age and later directed his professional focus from banking towards establishing a space dedicated to the arts. It was at this point when José Alegría founded Obra Galería – Alegría in Old San Juan with the consultation of his uncle, Ricardo.  The gallery space was relocated after Hurricane María to it’s current location in Condado, San Juan P.R.

OBRA Galería Alegría has been a three time winner of the Annual Prize in the category of Collective Exhibition granted by Critics of the Puerto Rican Association of Art (AICA), reaffirming OBRA Galería - Alegría as one of the most important galleries of the country.
