A nice little art gallery close to the Darwin Centre. Worth a stop over on the way to or from the tortoise breeding centre. If you need something to remind you of your visit, this could be the place for you.

I enjoyed just looking around in here at the gorgeous metal, textile, and painted art as well as the beautiful jewelry. Most everything was beyond my budget, but it was cool inside, and well worth spending time in this lovely gallery.

A wonderful gallery to look and appreciate. The artisans are at the top of their profession and the examples are awesome. I just wish I had the cash to afford the talent displayed.
