Don't miss this wonderful gallery with outstanding artists!

We were so happy we stopped here! There are two buildings with art work and also sculpture in the yard. So many talented artists represented here. Do not miss it!

This gallery is outstanding. There are marvelous sculptures throughout the lovely gardens. There were paintings done by several artists, all of which are extremely accomplished. There also are glass works which were amazing. The staff is solicitous without being obtrusive.
