This is a delightful gallery on the Pango road, well worth seeking out. Free entry, excellent permanent exhibition and a great temporary show as well while we were there. Dont miss the garden and short walk down to the water.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Foundation and the opportunity to see the work of local artists. The grounds are well worth a walk around too and there is an excellent library of art books.
