Just completed our trip up along the West Coast from California and this gallery is the best we went to see. Such a tribute to West Coast artists near and far, great selections (originals) and well displayed. Was a pleasure meeting the owners.

This used to be a friendly place to visit. One could go in and admire the pictures. I also bought several. The new owners do not even seem interested in talking to you. I had the feeling that they felt I was obviously not wealthy enough to make a purchase....so wrong. Also, the previous owner always supported local artists and... More

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.

The artwork and sculptures inside will blow your mind. I am compelled to walk in every time I am in town. Cannot go by without checking things out. The staff are welcoming and very knowledgeable. I have purchased some pieces here and I still love them. They also ship so no reason not to drop in.

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.
