This is a great gallery to look at the art- prices are beyond what the average tourist would be spending. All the art is of the highest quality. I would have loved to take several pieces home.More

For a small gallery in a small town, the Peninsula Gallery has a good selection of art. The staff are very helpful. I like that promote local artists.

Lovely pieces, and more than just paintings. In the heart of downtown Sidney, just steps from the beach, the hotels, and shopping. Even if you can't afford it, its worth the trip in to look and drool.
