A small but well layer out gallery with good lighting & divided spaces. The exhibit was good & the write up interesting. The staff were friendly & very helpful in directing us to other contemporary galleries.

This gallery is very small and for us I am afraid the few works were 100% without merit. We were in and out within 5 minutes and rather disappointed. This gallery seems to be one for people with very 'avant garde' tastes.
