We visited the open exhibition which is currently on until April. The standard of work on display was excellent especially the watercolours. If you have a spare 30 minutes or more it's definitely worth a visit.

A real low budget gallery. That on my visit, appeared to be displaying infantile 'daubs' presented as historical landscapes. I was actually quite amazed at this places ability, to cover so much wall space with so much dross. A tragic mess.

You need to contact the gallery direct as there is a charge for valuations. This is normal procedure. I have used outside valuers but I cannot recommend any particular person. There number is on their website. Good luck.
