Wall-to-wall art
Nov 2019
This multi-story art gallery has thousands of framed art works and posters spread over three levels. Framed art lines the narrow aisles, which run randomly throughout the gallery. many hanging pieces from the ceiling to the floor. The staff is cheerful and helpful, and they can keep you from being overwhelmed by the sheer number of pictures.

QUIRKY AND FUN!
May 2019 • Solo
Curiosity got me in the door, since the exterior is so funky! If you appreciate the quirky and fun in life, be sure to stop in for a sensory experience. Definitely visit at your own risk, if you have sensory overload or claustrophobic tendencies. LOTS of artwork, posters, etc. displayed from floor to (vaulted) ceiling, on several levels. And I use the term "displayed" loosely, as the artwork is stacked, piled, and mounded one upon the other. It is a treasure hunt to shop here, unless you find the one you want right on top of the pile! I did, in fact, purchase an "authentic original" Starry Night oil painting---nice versions rendered by a contemporary artist. I think the Van Gogh version had already sold, so I "settled." Nice owner, too, who seemed to be held hostage at the register by constant sales (at least on that day). Only first/boardwalk level is fully accessible, although might be impossible to traverse the narrow aisles with a wheelchair. Crowds make it even more of a challenge. Worth a look when you want a change from traditional boardwalk shops.

We actually went in the place twice in the 5 day trip we took, because it was sensory overload the first time, we had to go back and look a lil more before we found what we wanted.

Something for the Wall
Jun 2018 • Solo
I remember coming into this shop every year and looking around at all the paints, photographs, and poster here. It's a very neat shop and they have so much to look at!

I have pieces of art that I bought many years ago and it still hangs on my wall.

Here are some of the things I wondered and got answer to. You will notice that there are many of the same paints. They also come in many different sizes. Yes, these are recreations of famous paintings and while you might think it's a rip off, there is something to note about it. Lots of the paintings, photos, and art are done by international artist. The paintings are shipped in and sold there. Got and get yourself a Starry Night painted by an artist from Australia. I really thought it was neat getting to see different people's renditions of famous pieces.

Another thing is that they can ship the art that you by to your home. I'm not 100% sure, but it might be globally. You will have to check with them on the details. So don't worry about trying to get that large canvas in the trunk or having it get ripped through the airlines. Just ask them to ship it to you.

Check the hours as well. They tend to close up early, so get there before dinner so you don't miss them.

There is so many good pieces of art in this gallery. It’s so full. It’s a bit hard to look through everything. I could have been in there for hours. Very nice quality art.

Lots of art to chose from
Sep 2016 • Friends
Loads of different art styles to chose from in an amazingly packed funky building which itself is a bit of an icon.
If you want cheap art this is the place to go but if you want something unique then avoid like the plague.
Fun place all the same.

Not sure what the hype is
Aug 2016 • Family
Not worth going in. Most pictures were damaged or dirty looking. Place was a mess. Good place to get a poster since they are sealed. Otherwise don't bother. Junk
