We would have missed this gallery if Richard Hickman hadn't played bridge with my husband. I am an artist and was amazed at this gallery. It is actually a beautiful Victorian house which is made over almost totally as an art gallery showing works by the prolific artist Richard himself and 30 other local artists.

Located a few blocks from downtown, this gallery is sited in a lovely old home. Though I am not partial to water colors, the artist is very prolific, and the art shows well. Prices are reasonable, and it is a worthwhile stop to browse around and see if you find something to your liking.

Fascinating to wander round somebody's house with every room and every wall full of pictures.The house so clearly lived in but awash with many different artist's work. A lovely Manx cat hiding under a table added to the relaxed ambience.

This a great place to visit and pass an hour or two. The owner displays his own art plus that of other local artists. You can just wander round the house and there is no pressure to buy anything, although we did buy a few pieces!

Wow! Here is so much to see one can come back 10 times and still miss things. The artwork is diverse and the gifts something for everyone. Don't go through Montagu without visiting this easy going and friendly couple who can show you of the best art Montagu has to offer!

Richard Hickman and his wife have a house full of paintings that Richard has produced. Every kind of pictures are presented. Richard himself is at hand to discuss the pictures with you but is not pushy but very helpful. we purchased a small abstract painting for an excellent price. There were numerous bits of art that we loved but common... More
