    Just magical. Amazing art collection.
    Walking around the town, I saw this gallery and I was so glad that I went in. I love art and some of the pieces here were just stunning. It really was nice. Modern art. Small, free entry, clean, well designed with friendly staff who are more than happy to answer any questions. The gallery has a beautiful selection of art pieces that the owners have collected and displayed from various artists around the world. There are also display boards giving information about the artist and their work (in English). You can browse and spend ten to fifteen minutes inside or you can take your time and spend an hour in there. Either way, pop inside and see some amazing pieces of art.

    Well worth a visit
    My partner and I stumbled across this gallery by chance and were so glad that we did. There was a great variety of art work. The curators (Linda and Andrew) were so knowledgeable and provided us with lots of fascinating information about the works. Despite their clear expertise, they were completely non-judgemental about our ignorance about art and were very patient, warm and welcoming.. It was a lovely experience and it was so nice to do something a bit cultural after a lot of eating, drinking and shopping in Mykonos.

    Stunning
    Incredible collection of mind boggling (in a good way) works, all extremely well brought to life by very knowledgeable and friendly staff. I loved the Maria Callas work and my girlfriend was amazed by the Jeff Robb holograms. Fantastic little place!

When we least expected it we ran onto this artistic place with the magnificent pieces of art. It was late night, and we already had a couple of drinks so we were at the perfect relaxed mode to enjoy this experience.

The statues are so realistic, when we looked at them from the outside pedestrian road, we were unsure whether the diver in swimming suit statue was a real person posing as model or not.

If you are an arts person, the gallery is worth a visit even if just out of curiosity.

This was a fabulous addition to our trip to Mykonos. With an international flair, inspired by world-class artists, rarity Gallery inspired.
The staff patiently helped and explained every piece of art in detail providing a pleasant personal touch.

I'm not a regular visitor of museums or galleries, but was very curious about this one. I was absolutely impressed by the the international collection of this small gallerie. Also my compliments for the two young ladies who were present as guides. They both were very professional in their explanations of the artworks. I surely recommend this gallery to any visitor of Mykonos.

I should give at least 4 stars to the nice collection of Greek artists on display here but my rating is mainly a summary of my whole experience visiting the gallery, which was the most surreal! Gallery is formed of two rooms filled with nice collections of painting, statues and assemblies put together just randomly. You'll find bronze figurine statues randomly scattered around paintings intervened by some installations. Interestingly none of the adjacent ones had any shared subjects or stories to connect them, one'd fell the itch to feng shui the whole thing and create a more welcoming and a little coherent flow to enjoy the works. The most bizarre thing during our visit was the Greek parents flocking the gallery using the paintings and statues as the backdrop to take pictures of their kids!! Sadly none of the art works has any titles, artist name or prices; The worst was the gallery owner seemed not to like the tourist, shouted at one not to follow the example of the Greeks to take pictures, had a couple of [I guess American] senior visitors waiting for hours to tell them the price, so we didn't approach him for info. It didn't feel welcoming but there was some funny moments, felt like an edition of "Fawlty Towers" happening in a gallery :D I was tempted to stay longer for more drama but the gallery owner's attitude made us leave; we didn't want to end our night with some insults!
Tip. We were concerned about authenticity of art works on display so didn't even consider buying any piece; no tags and so much sensitivity against the tourist taking a picture raised the flag for us! Long waits to hear the price made us more concerned too. So do your research before splashing the cash. You might never come back to Mykonos to ask for a refund. Explore your options: there are many artist studios in Cyclades where you could have a lovely chat with the artist [we visited 3 in Santorini, loved all], cut the middle man and pay less for the art work to take home with good memories.

As one of the must see places in Mykonos town I went to rarity gallery to be amazed about modern art. Soon enough a guy who worked there approached me for some helpful notes but suddenly an older man appeared and without any reason stopped the guy and he wanted continue the explanation of the pieces. The other day I went back and the guy wasn't there. Asking in the neighborhood I learned that the owners change stuff like we change underwears. The old men, the owners, with the fake smile using people who need job and they treat them awful! The art there maybe some of that is good but the experience was bad. I hope that kind of people to learn finally a leason!!! Don't go there...don't support them

There happened to be a man there but he wouldn't open the door. They were closed for no apparent reason although posted hours said they were open. He handed us a card and asked us to come back tomorrow. Unfortunately we are on a cruise so that won't be possible.

Do not be fooled by this gallery. They may have some impressive works on show however, I can tell you from first hand experience that they treat their artists very badly. They have no respect for artists and are only interested in money. I was unfortunate enough to get involved with the gallery and sent them two pieces from England - some beautiful flower works made from cutlery that took me months to make. The works were not looked after and one of them returned to me was in such bad condition (not damage in transportation) that I had to throw it away on its return. It looked like it had been left out in the rain - it was rusty and covered in dirt. In short, if you like art and support artists do not put one foot through their door. I have exhibited in many galleries all over the world and these are by far the worst dealers I have ever met. No doubt the gallery will respond to this with more lies.

I recommend this gallery if you love art in all its different frames and forms.
The beautiful lady and handsome man inside are always ready to explain the idea behind or the inspiration for every work you are interested in.
Very interesting art in a very cool location.
Loved it!

This gallery is impressive! First, it is right in the core of Mykonos' downtown, so simply the experience of passing by while watching the city’s lovely white & blue architecture is amazing! Moreover, if you enter this gallery, you will find friendly staff that will tell you all you need to know about the stunning masterpieces they have. And these pieces are truly amazing! Not boring art at all, but very original hyper-realistic pieces you need to see!

Fantastic service from a wonderful owner. Prices are quite reasonable as well (market prices - not inflated "holiday resort" prices). Recommended if you are in the market for serious art.
