“Amazing art & photographs”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

I recently made a day trip to The Turner Contemporary in Margate & was left shocked & disgusted at some of the tripe on display in there.
Then as i was walking back along the seafront i stumbled upon The Imperial Art Gallery. The window has some real head-turning stuff & the art inside is both beautiful & original, mostly by local artists i'm told. The staff & owner were warm & friendly & i will be back to buy some art when i'm travelling by car rather than train. I strongly reccomend a visit whether you intend to buy or not. There is definately something for everyone of all tastes & ages in there. (unlike the Turner)
Loved your gallery guys! I will be telling all my friends to pop in!

“The most impressive gallery I have been too !”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

This is a gallery not to missed. We went to Margate to see the Turner Contemporary. However this gallery blew us away and we forgot why we went to Margate ! The people are lovely and the gallery is bright, big, contemporary, welcoming, beautiful and full of wonderful art, photography and gifts. We even got to meet Malcolm Hide himself and he talked us through his impressive photographs. It was amazing to meet such a talented artist/photographer. If you do anything in Margate - do this, it made our weekend - a real gem !!!
