  • We weren't thrilled with the artist who was displaying, therefore it doesn't get a very high review for the gallery. It's worth a stop though and it's like a flip of a coin. You could love it or you c...  read more »
  • Very small, very minimalistic, very hipster-y. I liked it though. Was a very short visit but it was free to enter so that is okay. Nice and quiet place, very peaceful end to a busy day.

  • I lived nearby this gallery for 2 years and everytime I visited it I was confused and disappointed by the exhibits. It's free to visit and the space itself is nice so it doesn't hurt to pop in for a minute. Many of the exhibits I saw were things like scribbles on pieces of paper (and not just one, but a whole room full), projectors with slide shows of random photos, a room with a few small geometric shape sculptures. Stuff like that.
  • A small gallery with some nice contemporary arts. The current featured artist is Kim Beon, a renowned modern Korean artist. Nice work.
  • Disappointed. Visiting from Vancouver Island and came into the city hoping to go to the gallery. It was closed. Too bad it says it's open on the website. Closed till Nov. 12th. Hope we can go again sometime when we're in town.
  • Two small galleries, well done exhibits but not much variety between galleries.
  • For what i saw, it was terrible. Maybe everyone else saw something different and i got stuck with art thats not the best
