Surprising, a beautiful gallery space with modern, contemporary original art in the middle of a town known for greenhouses. Helpful curator.

This is a very small town, with an amazing art gallery. Their art selection is high quality and well curated. They weren't technically open when we visited, but as there was a school visiting they allowed us to walk around too. Which was greatly appreciated.
