  • Nice quiet gallery in the middle of the hustle & bustle on the streets of Manly. Like the work in the gallery, transports you to a different dimension.
  • Went here for an amazing exhibit, blending science and art with the focus being ku-ring-gai national park. It was all free and very interesting, interactive and informative.
  • Great local art gallery featuring work from local artists and even students from Northern Sydney.
  • Alen was amazing. I had a silk scarf framed and Alen made suggested improvements and the outcome is perfect. Highly recommend!
  • A wonderful little space on the water to view some amazing local art. From maritime themes, to boundary pushing ceramics.
