A great gallery with local artists that had pottery, watercolor, oil and mixed media whilst we were there. They are very fair to their artists and the location is right off the Main Street!

Pam and Rick's gallery is lovely. Pam could not have been more welcoming and willing to answer all of our questions about the paintings on display and Rick's beautiful pottery. As a special treat, we got to meet Rick and see where he works his pottery magic. Well worth a visit!

This is a nice stop on the Island. Richard Boyd was cordial and the art was nicely displayed and not ridiculously priced.

Be sure to stop in if you need a bit of inspiration and elevation. Richard is the real deal, and his gallery is perfect for art lovers. Some of the best pottery you will find on the east coast.

I've been in a lot of pottery shops and this one is the best I've visited! Rick Boyd's designs are elegant and organic. They make you want to hold and view them. Rick mixes clays from around the world to get just the right material to match the design. The glazes are all formulated and created by Pam Williamson who... More
