I would describe the place as more like a cluster area for shops selling art than exhibition. Might be good for people wanting to explore the local artists. Some nice work in shops but most won't allow photo taking.

If you are into visual art, this is a place for you. It looks like it was an old factory or something before but now it is fashioned as a small area with loads of galleries and caffes.

As others have said, yes. It's about 10-15 minutes from the Central Train Station. It's a nice walk over the Suzhou river.
