Though not a large gallery, there were a variety of artworks displayed, multiple painting media, as well as varied pottery forms and finishes. Staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable. A quiet treasure on Peaks!

We had a few minutes to spare before ferry back to mainland and dropped in. Good selection of artists displayed. Prices are higher but they are top artists. Exhibition changed every 30 days. Worth a visit.

The gallery is a showcase for local artists. A different artist's work is featured monthly. Throughout the gallery artists of all sorts display and sell their work.

A great gallery with local artists that had pottery, watercolor, oil and mixed media whilst we were there. They are very fair to their artists and the location is right off the Main Street!

This is a nice stop on the Island. Richard Boyd was cordial and the art was nicely displayed and not ridiculously priced.

Be sure to stop in if you need a bit of inspiration and elevation. Richard is the real deal, and his gallery is perfect for art lovers. Some of the best pottery you will find on the east coast.
