Thanks, we try and update the range regularly but coming from a family of artists Peter and Sarah McLaren's work is on permanent display. So too the work of Susan McGill, a long time friend. J

Quaint but small gallery down spiral stairs but offers a wide range of art and artefacts with something for everyone. Some antiques to modern but can be tight for space.
