Laid out with a feeling of spaciousness. Ceramic pieces and artwork are appealing. Nice little gift shop. A very pleasant stop.

We are not art gallery fans usually. The cold dreary day pushed us to seek shelter in this building and it turned out to be a lovely find.

Friendly, upscale art venue with display space, classroom, pottery studio & gift shop. Sign up for a half-day workshop or month-long class. Diverse. Great diversion for a month of crappy weather. Fee for workshops but entry into the museum is free.

Nice small gallery with a delightful gift shop. In addition to major exhibits, they exhibit local artists' work that changes monthly. Definitely worth a stop.

A good mixture of art from local artists, most of which is for sale. Able to view most of the art in about half an hour. Great gift shop with a variety of goods among them jewelry, scarves and various art works. The admission was free and was worth our hour visit.

Of course, the art is mostly sea fare, but it is well done. I found a friend of mine's photo displayed there that had been sold before the opening. There is a wide variety of styles and mediums displayed for a person's perusal.
