Went to see Mambo exhibition. This was excellent. Had been to gallery before this day and was disappointed in lack of paintings on display. Would only visit if something on in future.

Minimalist in every way - that art, the attention of staff. The high point was buying a post care and the good coffee shop around the corner!
