Mr Koss is wonderful. Whenever we chat with him we learn something. His pictures have beautiful vivid colors. Each one's meaning is sometimes a personal experience. It is a short walk but well worth the visit.

We stopped in as we were walking down the beach. Interesting art and a proprietor who will take time to show you his work. South on the beach about ten minutes from town. Nice destination for an outing.

We saw the art but we really enjoyed meeting and talking with the artist, who is fluent in English (had lived in the states) and was intelligent and thoughtful.
