  • Excuse me people - the gallery is quite open everyday. Please correct the "Closed" tag on this location
  • Awesome place! Connell is incredibly knowledgeable about indigenous culture. He is very careful when working with indigenous groups using fair trade and sustainability practices. Good prices and a large percentage of his sales goes back to the artist.
