Saw two presentations of Picasso's work, mostly etchings. It was nicely curated, and sorted in an inspirational setting. Nice permanent collection, too, especially Inuit Art.

Not really. Although the gallery has a large collection, only a small percentage is available for viewing. If you want to see native art and artefacts try elsewhere - Like The Museum across town

The Art Gallery does not do that. You could call them to see if they know if anyone who would be interested in looking at your work
