  • Over the years we’ve bought many pieces of art mainly from the Sutton’s Bay location, a few new pieces from the TC shop. Great owner and customer service.

  • Love this gallery. Although it's about a block east of the main section of Front Street, it's well worth finding. All price points. All different media. But all very high quality. You really can find something for any body here. Highly recommend. I purchased several things as gifts for friends and one or two for myself.
  • My wife and I think the art work is creative and above the level of craft in terms of quality
  • A wonderland of art and curiosities. Perfect for a special gift or something to tweak your living space.
  • Please post your hours on your door since Google can't always be trusted to post correct hours. I'd like to come in and find a piece of art for my wife. Beautiful store and helpful owner. Very nice place.
  • If you like all kinds of art this place won't disappoint
