This is a well laid out gallery and contains some interesting modern indigenous art. There are informative videos which are well worth viewing. The shop has some excellent wares, books and prints. I was very tempted. It’s free entry and well worth a visit.

I wandered into this Arts Centre and was transfixed by the modern but traditional art in house. I was greeted and the centre's exhibitions explained and directed to the multi modal presentations which helped me understand the artists and the work in the gallery
