I loved the range of arts shown, well presented and signed. No entrance fee but you could make a donation. Lots of fabulous stuff available to buy in the very good shop. They sell books and encourage you to sit a while and browse. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

“Step into the 21st Century”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

After having seen so much over-commercialized aboriginal art during my two weeks in Australia, it was a breath of fresh air to see new trends in art being produced in Northern Australia. Their presentation of diverse aboriginal and and non-aboriginal art was refreshing, inspiring, and so satisfying. Like the name of the center, the art space is new, clean, and and very welcoming. In addition to the art on display, the center has one of the nicer museum gift shops that I have visited with again a nice diverse selection of items. And the staff is very helpful with aiding one's discovery of art being produced in the area. If you enjoy experiencing art, you will appreciate KICKARTS!
