    We were staying at the hotel and the receptionist suggested we had a look here - the history of the hotel going back to its founding and the influence it had on George Town and visa versa is detailed with posters and photos together with some exhibits - obviously the Hotel is proud of this associated and are to be commended for putting aside the space to mount this exhibition.

    Located about 100m from the main gate you will find this captivating shop amidst these houses on stilts in the sea.

    Unlike many other Asian places where the shop mainly retails art this is the workshop of Mr Amila who hails from Sri Lanka and is a naturalized Malaysian

    You can find him mostly from noon onwards making his masterpieces of abstract art of life , human and nature

    With his extensive experience in living life and practicing Buddhist meditation you can almost feel the intensity and yet the calmness in his work

    Do find some time to chat with him as he can bring you towards a journey of his art pieces

    See how the coexistence of nature, buddhism , meditation and art has created a blend of interdependence in his artwork

    I have been visiting the Galeri Seni Mutiara for several years now and every time I go, I am always impressed at the proprietor, Mr. Quay's keen eye for artistic talent. I have purchased several unique pieces and have also been very pleased with the efficiency in delivery.

    This place is totally empty. The place looks run down. It is a waste of time to come here. It is not interesting.

    An eye-opening experience getting to look at the fantastic photographs of sceneries, cultural studies and heritage sites of Penang and other countries captured by David Loh.
    Strongly recommend that everyone check out this gallery for a visual tour of the fine art photographs displayed and support his passion.
    Coffee table books are available at such reasonable prices too.

    One of the best and oldest art galleries in Malaysia, with a collection beyond compare of Malaysian old masters with excellent provenance. Quite possibly the most prolific in terms of publications, and their works are some of the most informative and well researched that I have come across.

    Purchased my first art pieces from them, and have had many enjoyable trips since - there is always more to learn and stories to share. Ee Lene (the gallerist) is a true expert and enthusiast, having grown up being surrounded by art since young, and is continuing her family's legacy in art.

    This place is not just another ‘homeware’ store but a visual artistic sensory experience that transports you to the world of South Africa, Botswana and Borneo - Their genuine, original and approved stock is as varied as their price points allowing everyone to both experience and purchase a little bit of this exotica. You are made to feel most welcome whether you want to buy or just chat. A must addition to any to-do list whilst in Georgetown.
