“A PERFECT PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

i went from Cyprus to Chania searching for the Gallery, after reading so many good comments, and when we got there we met Mr Nicos a Perfect Gentleman, and a very friendly person and gained a new friend, we saw some wonderful things and bought something for our collection with a lot of help from Mr Nicos, definately a must place too see whilst in Chania.

“Quirky art; charming man at desk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

When we came in to ask a question, got great help from man behind desk who I assume is the owner. Loved the art quirk of the collection. Near to the market, give it a whirl!

“truly, a breath of fresh air”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

The gallery is a must visit for anyone interested in arts and culture. The owners, besides selling some beautiful artwork by local artists, also are experts on the art and cultural scene of Chania. They are both very knowledgeable and true gentlemen. This place, besides the beauty of its art, can provide you with an insight to the soul and spirit of this historic and unforgettable town.

“One of a kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

In an otherwise gorgeous old town infested with tourist traps, kitschy souvenir shops, and "arts & crafts" of at questionable taste and authenticity, this unassuming and welcoming art gallery stands out. Too bad I didn't discover it earlier on during my visit! The owners have really not cut any corners—this is art by some of the finest contemporary Greek artists, expertly curated, properly exhibited, and available for sale at (mostly) very reasonable (and sometimes surprisingly low) prices. They also ship worldwide and, I must say, know how to package fragile objects *well* (obsessively well, actually, but I shouldn't complain about packaging if they err on the side of caution). Well worth an extended visit—be sure to chat with the charming and knowledgeable owners.
