“I keep trying "contemporary art" to no avail.”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Always happy to give things a go and in the area so called in. Just don't get it I think empty rooms would have been more fun! However each to their own but the current "exhibition" is really a bit thin on any content.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

A stunning building. Love both the inside and outside design. Enjoy the exhibition. Thought it was not a "stand out interest place" in Blackpool, but it's worth to check out this fascinating gallery. Lovely receptionist.

“Dreamland Exhibition”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Everyone should stretch themselves by going to an exhibition they didn`t know they were interested in. This one was unexpectedly fascinating. I wish I`d allowed mote time. Well done and thanks to the helpful lady on reception. Tea and cake next door at the library was lovely.

“love that theres a hip art gallery in the heart of Blackpool!”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

I saw artist Serena Kordas 'Aping the Beast' here and ended up following a giant dinosaur to the Tower Circus to watch a very surreal version of Godzilla....wonderful! Its hard to stand out in Blackpool but this show certainly did! Kids loved it to, makes a change from the same old commercial culture.
