Recently, I visited the Spirit Wrestler Gallery with my husband to see the Glass & Jade exhibit. I was totally impressed so went a second time with some friends. I think I was more impressed the second time.

3 of us went on Tuesday. It was well worth the visit for anyone who appreciates art. Items are not cheap, but good art is not cheap - it's an investment.

I love this gallery. Small, each piece seems to be carefully chosen to complement its neighbour. A selection which is representative of individual interpretations of West Coast Art steeped in hundreds of years of history. Very much worth a visit.

worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
