Once again dropped into this interesting little space during a recent sunday walk and found it full of handmade Christmas gifts and ornaments for sale. Several docents on hand ready to tell you about the artists and their objects. A pleasant seasonal interlude.

The place is not very large - it takes less than 15 minutes to see everything, but they feature exhibits from local artists- usually painting but some sculpture. Charming building right on the waters edge and fun for a quick look through every few months....More
