“High praise for Artist Mike Samson of York Street Gallery Ramsgate”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

About six weeks ago I commissioned Mike to do two med-large paintings for me as a gift for my cousins birthday. The style I chose was quirky - cartoon. The result? Absoloute perfection and total satisfaction. Whether his work is of a serious nature, or that of a cartoon-quirky style (which I chose) Mike is truly a skilled Artist. If you have any doubts, then go and see for your self. I'm certain it's only a matter of time before he will be well recognised not only by those who know him, but by those in the Art world who recognise genuine talent when they see it. This man has an even brighter future than he already has. Thank you Mike. Your pictures are truly inspirational and much like Ramsgates Harbour itself. Magical for all the right reasons.

“Fantastic isn't a good enough word”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Forget the Turner Contemporary! If you want to see art, York Street Gallery is the place to go. Breath-taking artwork by incredibly talented artists, excellent workshops which are affordable as well as invaluable, I can't praise this place enough, word needs to get out how great this place is!

“Ramsgate's own 'Turner Contempory'”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We have visited this gallery a couple of times and this visit was very very good. They were showing the works of Carl Hawkins following his career through many phases. He used many different mediums from pencil still life to beautiful water colours covering a variety of subjects.

This litle gallery changes it's exhibits on a regular basis showing not just paintings but pottery, wood carved items, handmade cards to name a few.

Do try and visit ,the owner is only to pleased to talk to you about his work, which is exceptional, as well as any of the other items.
