It's locked and empty. The signage has gone. But it seems that this business which has existed in various forms and places over two or more decades is understood to continue, online and later this year back in Plymouth.

An unexpected pleasure to find this small but very interesting gallery whilst out on a walk. The owner was welcoming and generous with his time to chat about the exhibits. Just goes to show that small can also be fascinating. Definitely worth calling in if...More

This small but good little gallery has an interesting and eclectic collection of art work, which is well worth a visit. A friendly owner who was happy to discuss the art work was very helpful.

Well worth a visit to this gallery. They have quite a mixture of painting on display and vastly differing prices. Well worth a visit - especially if you are going to The Canteen.

Situated on a wind swept hill overlooking Kingsand and Cawsand with different styles of art work, this is an intimate little gallery which you should get through in a half hour.

It has some very good stuff. Perhaps most of it beyond my pocket but great to look at. Set in an old guard house amidst a cluster of old buildings.

This is a very friendly set up. And it has some impressive pictures. These are not cosy prints for neat frames in your living room but exquisite and/or challenging images by good artists. The little building is on an exposed open piece of high ground...More
