  • Beautiful gallery. Happy I stumbled upon it! nice walk up from the cruise ship. Some really wonderful artworks by Bahamian artists through the centuries are on display. Highly recommend!
  • One of the top places for viewing Bahamian fine art. They also plan interesting events throughout the year.
  • An awesome gallery in a beautiful old Bahamian mansion! Not enough people know about this place or visit it, which is a shame but also allows for a more peaceful setting for those who do.
  • Cool place to stop in and get a feel for the island. Very friendly people!
  • Went there to view my daughter work it was amazing
