Modern art but nothing too exciting was available in this interesting building. The gallery was more interesting than this years artwork. I have visited this gallery before . The sculptures and paintings are interesting and some are for sale.

The art exhibit was very interesting ! There were many exhibits to look at with much creative talent behind each piece of work. The building itself is very interesting to look at . We were quite pleased.
