It is really an amazing experience. The art is moving. A variety of artists with different ways of expression, all housed in an historic building. It's a must visit.

We got to see a special exhibit by local artists. What is on display is spread out among various rooms upstairs. The lower level was closed when we were there. Five dollar admission, well worth it. Great views from the upper veranda.

I've walked there each time I've been at port. It is uphill so it's a little strenuous but walking up the street is an adventure in itself. It is also within walking distance of Graycliff Chocolate Factory and Watling's Rum... More
