  • Fabulous and varied displays of international quality artworks in many media. Exquisite Art Deco period building clad in beautiful marbles ... Lovely marble floors, magnificent turned wood bannisters, elevator for ease of access to second floor of galleries and classroom. Frequent classes and demo days.
  • Good amount of wall space. Decent gallery sizes. I ought to go on an art opening evening sometime, because all the times I've visited the place has been empty of other people.
