A nice variety of artworks.

A good variety of paintings, prints, sculptures. We bought a very interesting dish carved out of a beach boulder. Beautiful.

The gallery is bright, spacious and very friendly. There is a wide variety of works by local artists to suit all tastes and priced for various budgets. We purchased a beautiful glass painting which we cannot wait to hang at home.

We visit this lovely shop every time we visit the island. Full of local artwork including photos, oil work and sculptures. So something to suit all. Every time there are new pieces added. Friendly staff who are willing to help and provide artist biographies
