The gallery was huge and full to the brim with really varied and fantastic art. Primarily paintings, but also some scuplture and interesting stuff. It was free, but we donated. Highly recommend, a must see!

It was very interesting see all the different types of art. They get artists to move there and work on their art for a year. They get to have an exhibition
