Lovely gallery, beautiful range of works, really enjoyed wandering round, but the attitude of the male young member of staff was unfriendly to the point of bordering on rudeness which sadly put us off.

Didn't go in expecting to buy but in the end heart ruled head and I sprung for a painting. Couldn't resist :) It now hangs in the bedroom and brightens up my day.

I used to show some of my work at this gallery, but it's very small and doesnt get much passing trade. It's ok though to spend a rainy half an hour in.

This gallery has a good selection of paintings and other work, mainly from local artists, at a range of prices. Interest free payment schemes are available to spread the cost of more expensive works. There is also a great range of jewellery from local makers.
