Fun little place to visit. The items on display are changed frequently, everything from serious art to kitschy and most is for sale. Admission is free so stop in if you have the time.

The art was visually beautiful, but not many artists were show cased and one artist had the entire lower floor. Would like to see a larger scale of different mediums and possible sculptures.
