This gallery was light and warm. A good place to browse the exhibitions which seem to change frequently. The staff were very friendly.

“It all depends on the exhibit...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

I love art but the exhibits that were offered up when I visited where awful. I haven't spent so little time in a gallery. The audio-visual presentation of a light bouncing off walls in a dark warehouse, of a lit candle and a couple spray painted sheets left much to desired. Let's hope something better comes along soon.
