“Small Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We visited the day after Thanksgiving while distributing posters for the Winter Bainbridge Island Studio Tour. Very warm welcome to a small gem of a museum housed in a distinctive NW contemporary building, formerly a home. In addition to the indoor display space the grounds hold a sizeable collection of whimsical outdoor art. The visit turned out to be a real treat.

“I live in P.A., so it's a TREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

yes, very well planned and diverse art and great Woodsy gallery, too the now-retired curator was a very gifted visionary and artist himself. Great place outdoors, too, for kids to run and explore safely with wild natural enhancements to the encironment. e.g., huge ball of ivy-rolled up like yarn, etc...

“Outdoor Art is Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

If you like installation art in a natural setting, this is the place for you! We didn't arrive in time to go into the center, but we spent over an hour exploring outside. We would have stayed longer but we arrived after dinner and the bugs were starting to bother us. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

“What a great idea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We loved the outdoor sculptures hidden away in the woods, with a large number of intersecting paths leading to various sights. At each junction you can choose a new direction to walk, and it sometimes takes some searching to find all the objects hidden in the forest. Much of the art features found materials, and has been designed specifically for the site. The gallery is well off the beaten track, but is worth the short drive.
