“Excellent view and architecture!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This gallery is named for a local artist who used the old sugar mill as her painting studio. There are some pieces of her artwork here, but most artwork could be seen in Nisbet Plantation Inn.

If you are looking for high quality souvenirs, this is where you can get them. There are some beautiful pieces of furniture here as well, located in the lower floors. In high season, there is a small cafe/snack bar that also runs. The proprieters of this store also run the gift shop at the Botanical Gardens, but this has more variety of offerings.

“Exquisite pieces”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Given the history of the gallery, it was nice to see quality items being sold. Worth a look for Far Eastern art

“FURNITURE AND TRINKETS”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

By chance we went down the road to the gallery which was an old sugar mill and is now the centre point of a thriving business in home furniture and trinkets of all kinds along with plenty of paintings by the local artists and others, a very good way to spend an hour browsing through all the items and the gardens are slowly becoming an even more focal point by the Thai's that run the gallery.

“Beautiful gallery and setting”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

The setting and architecture of this gallery add to it's beauty and interest. It has a wide range of well designed quality items, not the usual tourist stuff. There are Asian influenced pieces for the home, jewelry, lovely scarves, furniture and of course reproductions of Eva Wilkin;s work. Worth seeking out plus there are Boris and Angus the friendly dogs.

“Another little gem for Nevis”
Reviewed 8 March 2013

Nevis is full of hidden gems and this newly opened Galleria is just the latest
It has moved from what used to be part of the Botanical Gardens into a purpose built building next to s Sigar Mill on top of a hill
magnificent views and the Gallery itself is full of beautiful things from wooden furniture,locally made spice concoctions and of course lots of Eva Wilckin prints
Worth a trip to Nevis just to See little gems of which this is a sparkling example
